A PACT WITH DEATH
Joslin and Alys come to London with their dreadful news. But Death still follows them. A body is pulled out of the Thames. It bears both the deadly marks of the Black Death and a slit throat. How
can a man die twice? There is a vengeful double-dealer in death at large and Joslin finds himself facing the same fate from the evil figure who claims the Devil’s special protection.
