David Field is back with a brand new Victorian mystery series! Perfect for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Andrew Taylor, Anne Perry and Robin Paige…
Should you be afraid of the dead – or the living?
Over two hundred years ago, in 1665, a mass grave was dug to house the hundreds of corpses who fell victim to the Black Death. When Aldgate Underground station was extended, the workmen discovered the grave and unceremoniously dumped the bones, to make way for the new track.
Now, a renowned spiritualist is claiming the dead are rising to punish Londoners.
Strange encounters start to be reported in London’s East End with some people dying from unexplained causes.
People start to panic, and distressed parishioners consult local preacher, Matthew West, looking for reassurance.
Matthew is at a loss and turns to local doctor, James Carlyle, for answers.
Carlyle and West have very different views on science and religion, but they decide to work together to get the bottom of the mysterious deaths.
Has a curse really been put on London? Have the dead risen from their graves?
Or could a serial killer be loose in the city…?
Interviewing the Dead is the first crime thriller in an exciting new historical crime series, the Carlyle & West Victorian Mysteries, by David Field.
