I was looking for an account of the great fire of london, this was not it, the fire happens towards the end of the book. Even so I thoroughly enjoyed reading this action packed well written book.

It is best suited to readers who can appreciate an old style of writing and speech. No four letter words and no sex and no master criminal and master detective running to the rescue. I found it an enjoyable read from beginning to end.

Read as part of his collected works. The title is misleading as the great fire plays a small part only. Taken as a whole this is a good read and conveys very well what things were like at the end of an era. The House of Stewart was clearly on it's way out and this book gives some solid clues as to why. History fairly minimal, story and hero to the fore. Just the way I like them.

Having been born in London its good to read how London got where it was today. History has always been a favourite of mine.
