The Great Fire has reduced London to smouldering embers. From the ashes, thief taker Charlie Tuesday is drawn to investigate a string of strange murders. Mutilated corpses are washing up at Deptford, each marked with a dire astrological prediction. But only London’s best crime-solver realises the killer’s deadly offerings will soon unleash a devastating force on England.

With the help of Lily Boswell, a gypsy street-girl with a knife and a grudge, Charlie must find the killer and put a stop to the murders. And by doing so, the Thief Taker will find the man whose terrible destiny is entwined with his, their fates written in the dark stars…

This is the third book in the Thief Taker Series but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

    After what I thought was the disappointing follow-up to “The Thief Taker”, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this latest book in the series was a real return to form. It is fast paced with short, sharp chapters and introduces – and revisits – several characters. It also focuses substantially on the superstitions of the day with an impending eclipse of the moon.The story basically surrounds what I can only presume was the real historical threat of a Dutch invasion following the great fire of London and the plague and involves the efforts of Charlie, as well as several unsavoury individuals, to retrieve a mythical item called “The Eye”. This was thought to be a device or object created by an astrologer years before and was said to ensure victory in war or riches to anyone who possessed it. Believe me, its real purpose is actually ingenious! However, the clues for finding it need to be decoded along the way. Charlie and his feisty, knife-wielding, female assistant possess two out of four rings which they believe, when all four are joined together, will ultimately lead them to “The Eye”. The search for these other two rings is central to the plot.There are several chapters covering the Royal Court but these are much better written and considerably more amusing than they were in the previous book when I thought they were intrusive and distracted the reader from the main story. There are also chapters which demonstrate the severe life endured by the sailors of the age. But all of it is relevant and becomes clear very quickly.All in all, a terrific adventure yarn with hints that the future for Charlie is not what we thought it might be during and after the first book. Very much recommended.

    This tale of plots and counter plots, besotted fools, treachery and treasure, sails along at a rip tide of a pace. There were some intriguing moments when I thought Charlie and his gypsy friend were about to be outmanoevered but I should have trusted Charlie's wit, wisdom, memory and ingenuity. I perceived some facts sprinkled liberally about the fiction which made for an even more interesting read. This is a fabulous story crafted with panache and style. I enjoyed it immensely.

    This series is excellent. The first two books covered two enormous events in our history and interlaced the events of the plague and the fire into two great stories. Charlie Tuesday is a good hero who has tragedy, enlightenment and a brilliant mind with almost Sherlock like properties into a compulsive read. The story was slow to start and brutally graphic in context, I am not sure that was totally necessary for the plot. The worry I have is that this book was shorter than the previous two books and I find it very disappointing if the series is going to be stretched out in order to maximise profit and not just for writings good novels. This book leaves other questions to solve, please make them worthwhile.

    This third book logically follows the style of the two earlier books in the series. Still more "and in one bound the hero was free" situations. However, the writing does not replace the pictures of the Marvel comics. The clever series of riddles are gradually "explained" but somehow it does not all hang together. Each Charlie Tuesday chapter seems to be almost a cut and paste in terms of structure with just the scene changed. The interspersed King Charles chapters don't seem to be relevant, and the Janus chapters only prepare the riddle or explanation for Charlie chapters.The characters seem to be cardboard cutouts and the writing does nothing to develop the characters or their surroundings. If you enjoy puzzle books then you can enjoy this "final" book in the series. I've put final in quotes because if you're looking for a total and complete solution to the origins of Charlie Tuesday there has to be another book - maybe. Out of respect for C. S. Quinn I won't explain further. Get the book if this is your cup of tea!

    I really hope that a fourth book is in the making as I have enjoyed all three in the series so far. You do need to take this with a pinch of salt though as I think a woman of that time would not be able to crawl along small tunnels, climb or swim at all easily in the clothing of the 17th century! Still, it was a page turner and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The third in the series. I found it entertaining though not riveting. It certainly recreates the presumed life of the 'lower' classes of the time, far more interesting as historical fiction than just royalty and upper classes.

    I was pleased to find this book as engaging and entertaining as the previous ones, with a fast moving lively plot. The scenes were so vividly described that I could see it made into a film. An excellent read!

    This is the third book in the series but I didn't realise it. I enjoyed the pace of the book and also the historical context. The short chapters gave plenty to think about and made it an easy book to read, as I could read a couple of chapters with a cup of tea. It's an interesting period of history when there was such a store set on astrology and almanacs and the early printing houses. I will now backtrack and read the earlier books.
