Publisher's Summary

Christopher Rowe is back, and there are more puzzles, riddles, and secrets to uncover in this follow-up to the Indie Next pick The Blackthorn Key, which was called a "spectacular debut" by Kirkus Reviews.

The Black Death has returned to London, spreading disease and fear through town. A mysterious prophet predicts the city's ultimate doom - until an unknown apothecary arrives with a cure that actually works. Christopher's Blackthorn shop is chosen to prepare the remedy. But when an assassin threatens the apothecary's life, Christopher and his faithful friend, Tom, are back to hunting down the truth, risking their lives to untangle the heart of a dark conspiracy.

And as the sickness strikes close to home, the stakes are higher than ever before.

    "good historical mystery"

    Set against the backdrop of the great plague, this book is basically a well crafter mystery. the reader is provided with enough clues to solve it. there are also a lot of loveble characters including Brigitte, the dove, and some very believable villains. great read with a bit of history thrown in.a
