After reading one of the author's books, I avidly sought out all the other books by Edward Marston and not a single one has ever disappointed me. They are about a period of history that I love. His Elizabethan theatre series of books were wonderful and he has continued them through from 1988 to 2006. The Domesday series is also a great series and this series of books featuring Christopher Redmayne is equally as good.
Christopher Redmayne, a young and talented architect is gaining a reputation, not only for his accomplishments in the designing of houses, a profession much in demand after the Great Fire of London, but with the assistance of his friend constable Jonathan Bales, a likeable man, but one with strong puritanical beliefs, he is also gaining a reputation as a solver of mysteries. In this story Christopher and Jonathan find themselves on the trail of a murderer, a repentant rake. Following their enquiries through the streets of London, they find not only corruption and intrigue, but also have to avoid attempts on their own lives, as they come closer to the truth.
