C.C. Humphreys has written many books in the historical fiction category, but in 2014 he turned his 17th century settings to the crime fiction genre and ran away with the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime fiction novel of the year. ‘Plague’ takes place in London in 1655 during the reign of Charles II. We follow highwayman Captain Coke and thief taker Pittman as they track a brutal and ruthless killer as the Plague begins to take root in the fetid streets of London. As Publishers Weekly states…Humphreys’ expressive writing style and ability to weave a tale from these engaging characters` respective points of view makes for a rich and addictive read.
