'King Death proves to be an informative and interesting look at the effects of the plague in terms of population, architecture, religion and lineage.'
'An extensively annotated, copiously referenced, informative book with valuable insights.'
'Colin Platt has now given us a lively and lucidly written new work that incorporates all the latest scholarship and historical debate about this extraordinary crisis ... Death indeed was king during the late Middle Ages, and Platt's book is now the best treatment of the subject for undergraduates.'
