MARK OF THE PLAGUE (Blackthorn Key #2) by Kevin Sands


The story: It’s 1665, and the black plague has hit London with a vengeance. A unexpected message from Christopher’s dead master, apothecary Blackthorn, reveals that there’s a treasure hidden somewhere in the house…but Christopher can’t seem to find it, and money is getting tight. Even worse, friends are falling victim to the plague, and a mysterious plague “prophet” has predicted that Christopher’s best friend, Tom, will be among the next to die…

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I’m a big fan of “The Blackthorn Key”, and thought this one was really good as well–there are puzzles to crack and mysteries to solve, and fans of book 1 will like book 2 also.
