The Dead Don't Wait Paperback / softback

Part of the A Bloody Mary Mystery series

Paperback / softback


Jack Blackjack stands accused of killing a priest in the wickedly entertaining new Bloody Mary Tudor mystery. April, 1555. A priest has been stabbed to death in the village of St Botolph, to the east of the City of London, his body left to rot by the roadside - and Jack Blackjack stands accused of his murder. As well as clearing his name, Jack has his own reasons for wanting to find out who really killed the priest - but this is an investigation where nothing is as it seems.

Was it a random attack by a desperate outlaw, or do the answers lie in the murdered priest's past?

As he questions those who knew the dead man, Jack is faced with a number of conflicting accounts - and it's clear that not everyone can be telling him the whole truth.

But Jack is about to be sidetracked from the investigation . with disastrous consequences.
