‘What a wonderful storyteller Maitland is’ THE TIMES
DANIEL PURSGLOVE BOOK THREE
From the stark Yorkshire landscape to the dark underbelly of Jacobean London, Daniel Pursglove’s new mission sees him fall prey to a ruthless copycat killer…
London, 1607. As dawn breaks, Daniel Pursglove rides north, away from the watchful eye of the King and his spies.
He returns, disguised, to his childhood home in Yorkshire – with his own score to settle. The locals have little reason to trust a prying stranger, and those who remember Daniel do so with contempt.
When a body is found with rope burns about the neck, Daniel falls under suspicion. On the run, across the country, he is pursued by a ruthless killer whose victims all share the same gallows mark. Are these the crimes of someone with a cruel personal vendetta – or has Daniel become embroiled in a bigger, and far more sinister, conspiracy?
A new river of treason is rising, flowing from the fields of Yorkshire right to the heart of the King’s court . . .
