Liars and Thieves

(2014)
A Novella by

 
 
Liars and Thieves is an exclusive e-novella featuring characters from Karen Maitland's much-loved Company of Liars, set against the backdrop of the plague outbreak of 1348. Sure to enthral fans of Minette Walters' The Last Hours and Kate Mosse's The Burning Chambers.

'Combines the storytelling traditions of The Canterbury Tales with the supernatural suspense of Mosse's Sepulchre in this atmospheric tale of treachery and magic' Marie Claire on Company of Liars

Camelot and Narigorm the rune reader return to delight fans of Karen Maitland's classic novel as the company - in their desperate bid to outrun the plague - encounter a band of outlaws, who are making the most of the breakdown in law and order to steal from the weak ... and kill at leisure.

But in the child Narigorm they might just have met their match - for plague is the lesser of those two evils.

What readers are saying about Liars and Thieves:

'If you read Company of Liars, you'll love this. A wonderful short story'

'A short but excellent read from this consistently reliable author'

'An interesting gap filler. Atmospheric, dark, occasionally gruesome and mildly creepy. A nice reminder of the original characters and storyline'
