BOOKS > The Pursuit of Angels



I am currently working on a historical novel,

The Pursuit of Angels


It is set in London, in the years 1611 - 1612...


It is planned as the first of a trilogy set in the early seventeenth century

LONDON 1611. Seeking a sexual education, Thomas Ambrose takes Alice, a beautiful young prostitute, to Hyde Park. After losing his virginity, he falls asleep. He wakes to find his clothes stolen and Alice gone. Wrapping himself in the blanket they have been making love on, he heads home in the rain. He passes Tyburn. There has been a hanging. The storm has driven away the crowd. As Tom watches, the naked body of the hanged man lurches to its knees and crawls away. Shocked to his core, he decides that only the devil is able to enter a lifeless corpse and walk free from a gallows death....
