A city destroyed.

A killer exposed.

London,1666. The Great Fire rages through the city, consuming everything in its path. Even the impregnable cathedral of St. Paul s is engulfed in flames and reduced to ruins. Among the crowds watching its destruction is James Marwood, son of a traitor, and reluctant government informer.

In the aftermath of the fire, the body of a man is discovered in the ashes of St.Paul s. But he is not a victim of the blaze- there is a stab wound to his neck and his thumbs have been tied behind his back. Acting on orders, Marwood hunts the killer though London s devastated streets- where before too long a second murder is uncovered.

At a time of dangerous internal dissent, Marwood s investigation will lead him into treacherous waters- and across the path of a determined and vengeful young woman.
