Black Death, London 1665

The Thief Taker - C.S. Quinn

I was very impressed with this book. This is the author, C.S. Quinn's, first book but you wouldn't know that from reading it. She did a fabulous job! The story is centered around the Great Plague that affected London in 1665 which is fascinating in itself but Quinn really sets the scene and makes you feel what those people and the city went through with the graphics and detail she uses. You can tell through her writing that she did a considerable amount of research on the Plague and old London. The characters were also unique and well-developed. I especially liked Charlie Tuesday, the thief taker and main character and I'm looking forward to hearing more about him and the Great Fire of London in Quinn's next book, Fire Catcher.
