Ring the bells and lock up your homes, Karen Maitland, author of the bestselling Company of Liars, is back, and so is the plague. Join Karen as she discusses everything from pustules to dwarves, ghost ships to lost villages in her new chilling, atmospheric and dark medieval thriller.

Karen Maitland travelled and worked in many parts of the United Kingdom before settling for many years in the beautiful medieval city of Lincoln, an inspiration for her writing. She is the author of The White Room, Company of Liars, The Owl Killers, The Gallows Curse, The Falcons of Fire and Ice, The Vanishing Witch and The Raven’s Head. She has recently relocated to a life of rural bliss in Devon.
