Synopsis of The King’s Evil (Christopher Redmayne 1) by Edward Marston:

Christopher Redmayne is a true Restoration man. After the destruction wrought by the Great Fire, he is also one of the architects working to restore London to its vibrant and bustling state.

Jonathan Bale is a Puritan constable who firmly believes that the fire would never have happened under Oliver Cromwell. Bale has an unshakeable sense of right and wrong which has made him an excellent upholder of the law and a fierce critic of the newly restored Court.

At first sight, meeting by chance in the ashes of the ruined city, Redmayne and Bale would seem to each other to embody all that irritates them most in their fellow man. However, thrown together by a fatal stabbing, they will have to bury their differences – or risk the murderer claiming an unthinkable victim…
