Fire Summary

Fire by C. C. Humphreys

First came Plague, now comes Fire. The epic tale of the hunt for a serial killer threatening London's rich and poor during the Great Fire of London. Perfect for fans of S J Parris and C J Sansom. 1666. The Great Plague has passed. Londoners celebrate survival in different ways. They drink. They gamble. They indulge in carnal delights. But 666 is the number of the Beast, the year foretold when Christ will return. A gang of fanatics - the Saints - choose to hasten that prophesied day. They will kidnap, rape, murder. Above all, they will kill a king. Two men - the highwayman William Coke and the thief-taker Pitman - are recruited to stop them. Then in the early hours of September 2nd, 1666, something starts that will overtake them all... London's a tinder box. Politically, sexually, religiously. Literally. It is about to burn.

About C. C. Humphreys

C.C. (Chris) Humphreys - born in Toronto, raised in London - is an actor, playwright, fight choreographer and novelist. `My first job out of school was as a motorcycle messenger, based in St Giles, where much of Plague and Fire takes place. It was a ghastly slum in 1665, and thousands died horribly there in the Great Plague. And much of this area suffered during The Great Fire of London in 1666. I think many Londoners have a deep-buried memory of the devastating things that have happened to their city. Walking those streets again, it's not hard to sense the bones just below the paving stones.' Chris has written nine historical fiction novels including The French Executioner, the Jack Absolute Series, Vlad and Shakespeare's Rebel. Fire is a thriller set in London 1666 and follows on from Plague.
