Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Watchmen stand between respectable citizens and night time horrors. George Man is one such watchman. Geoffrey Stannard is found dead, left to die in the very way plague victims were sacrificed, this appals Man. Is there a connection between the murder and Stannard's journals of the Plague years?

This novel would've made a good hour's worth of television worthy of PBS' "Mystery" series.
A watchman in 17th century London tries to find the killer of an old man.
Solid if slow-moving story and an absolutely incredible recreation of the feel of the seedy side of 1700s London. About the only drawback is Heller's fascination with Man's thoughts, especially as he worries about protecting his area if another round of the plague hits. The only failure was not recognizing that the victim would have died of thirst long before he would have died of hunger. The title was relevant to the story.
