CHELSEA STRANGLER

SUSANNA GREGORY    Book Number: 85252    Product format: Paperback

In the sapping summer heat of 1665, the king, his retinue and anyone with sufficient means has fled the plague-ridden city, its half-deserted streets echoing to the sound of bells tolling the mounting number of deaths. At Chelsea, a rural backwater by the river with fine mansions leased to minor members of the Court, there are more immediate concerns - the government has commandeered the theological college to house Dutch prisoners of war and a vicious strangler is stalking the neighbourhood. Thomas Chaloner is sent to investigate the murder of the first victim, an inmate of a private sanatorium known as Gorges. He soon realises that Gorges has stronger links to the prison than just proximity, and that the influx of strangers offers plenty of camouflage for a killer - a killer who has no compunction about turning on those determined to stop his murderous rampage. 488pp in paperback.
