City of Masks by S.D Sykes

 

It’s 1361 and plague has returned to England, thirteen years after the devastation of the Black Death.  Oswald de Lacy and his family seek sanctuary at a remote castle on the edges of the Kent marshes – but soon discover that this isolated community is no place of safety.

 

“Sykes is a master at combining

historical setting with mystery.”
