Audiobooks
By January 1666 the plague has almost disappeared from London, leaving its surviving population diminished and in poverty. The resentment against those who had fled to the country turns to outrage as the court and its followers return, their licentiousness undiminished. While most of Thomas Chaloner's attention is on the continuing threat of the war with the Dutch, he is aware of a growing restlessness among Londoners, and of shadowy forces which are directing this anger against the King's profligacy and his plans to commemorate his father's execution. The death of a well-connected physician, the mysterious sinking of a man-of-war in the Thames and the disappearance of a popular courtier are causing concern to Chaloner's employer. When instructed to investigate them all he is irritated that he is prevented from gaining intelligence on the military preparations of the Dutch.
