A Plague of Sinners
A grisly dinner-table death starts Harry off on the trail and it’s not long before his familiar accomplice, Dowling the butcher, joins him on the case. Their master, Lord Arlington, tasks them with uncovering the name and motive of the Earl’s murderer - but there will be plenty more deaths and scrapes for Harry before the name is revealed.
