Product description

Review

Comparisons to the master of historical crime, CJ Sansom, are inevitable and, in this case, justified. (The Times)

The whodunnit aspect is neatly done, the family secrets and waspish relationships are intriguing, and humour and originality are abundant. (Daily Mail)

Trouble, and its attendant duties, confront the reluctant young lord on nearly every page of this eventful, engrossing, informative mystery set in mid-14th-century Kent. (Wall Street Journal)

Sykes establishes herself firmly as a major talent. (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for PLAGUE LAND (:)

The medieval CJ Sansom (Jeffery Deaver)

There's a nice, cliché-free sharpness to Sykes' writing . . . that suggests a medieval Raymond Chandler at work, and there are no phony celebrations of the peasantry or earth-mothers thrusting herbal concoctions down grateful throats. Plenty of action and interesting characters, without intervention of the libertarian modern conscience that so often wrecks the medieval historical novel. (Independent)

PLAGUE LAND is a fascinating historical crime novel about a world turned upside down, inhabited by a rich cast of characters. A terrific debut and a wonderful start to a brand-new series. (Antonia Hodgson, author of THE DEVIL IN THE MARSHALSEA)

Sykes's debut provides everything a reader would want in a historical mystery: a gripping plot, vivid language, living and breathing characters, and an immersive depiction of the past. (Publisher's Weekly)

Sykes has really reset the bar for medieval mysteries . . . every clue brings with it unexpected twists and turns. When you think you know who the killer is, you're slapped with yet another surprise. (Medievalists)

Book Description

A gripping medieval historical crime thriller, from 'the medieval CJ Sansom' (Jeffery Deaver).
