Liars and Thieves (A Company of Liars short story)

Liars-and-Thieves-cover-large

Liars and Thieves is an exclusive new short story set against the backdrop of the plague outbreak of 1348 by Karen Maitland, author of the much-loved Company of Liars.

‘Combines the storytelling traditions of The Canterbury Tales with the supernatural suspense of Mosse’s Sepulchre in this atmospheric tale of treachery and magic’ Marie Claire on Company of Liars

Camelot and Narigorm the rune reader return to delight fans of Karen Maitland’s classic novel as the company – in their desperate bid to outrun the plague – encounter a band of outlaws, who are making the most of the breakdown in law and order to steal from the weak … and kill at leisure.

But in the child Narigorm they might just have met their match – for plague is the lesser of those two evils.
