'If it's excitement and mystery you're after, try the bang up to date and very topical 'Plague'.'
Time and Leisure Magazine
'Loved the tension in the story which gripped me right to the end. Very accurate description of Westminster, especially how easy it is to get lost!'
Lord Collins of Highbury

There are many ways to die. Plague is just one.
Work on a London tube line is halted by the discovery of an ancient plague pit and in it, a very recent corpse. A day later another body is found, also in a plague pit. This victim is linked to the Palace of Westminster, where rumours swirl around the Prime Minister and his rivals.
As the number of deaths climbs, the media stokes fear. Government assurances are disbelieved. Everyone feels threatened. This has to be resolved and fast.
A disgraced civil servant and a policeman must find the answer before Westminster closes for recess. Power, money and love curdle into a deadly brew that could bring down the Mother of all Parliaments.
Time is running out. And it’s not clear what – or who – will survive.
