The Last Hours by Minette Walters




The last book I tried to read set at the time of the Black Death in the Middle Ages was so depressing I had to abandon it.  The Last Hours, thankfully, was very different.

Minette Walters is a fabulous writer.  You felt that she was being true to the times while using accessible normal English.  This has been criticised in some reviews but I think it helps the story a lot.

The story has an inspiring heroine and an incredible villain.

The fate of the villain is left in the balance at the end and there will be another book – which I will be looking out for.  I couldn't find out what it is going to be called.

Previous novels by this author have been in the crime genre – and she does know how to build suspense.

  1. The Last Hours sounds interesting - have you read The Domesday Book by Connie Willis?
