What I Read on holiday 2

A Lovely Way To Burn Book Cover A Lovely Way To Burn
Plague Times Trilogy 1
Louise Welsh
John Murray
2014

A fatal epidemic nicknamed "the sweats" is starting to take hold of the UK.  In London, Stevie Flint, a former journalist and now a shopping channel presenter, finds her boyfriend dead.  And she doesn't believe "the sweats" killed him.

I’m a huge fan of Louise Welsh.  This is somewhat of a departure for her.  I don’t like plague and pestilence plots, but am always horribly gripped by them.  If you haven’t read anything by her before then start with The Cutting Room, her first book.
