SCENT OF DEATH, THE by Andrew Taylor - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Andrew Taylor.

From the No. 1 bestselling author of THE AMERICAN BOY comes a brilliant new historical thriller set during the American War of Independence.

Manhattan, 1778. A city of secrets, profiteers, loyalists and double agents.

As the last part of America under British rule, New York is home to a swelling tide of refugees seeking justice from the British crown.

Edward Savill is sent from London to investigate the claims of dispossessed loyalists. No sooner does he land than he becomes embroiled in the case of a gentleman murdered in the city’s notorious Canvas Town. An escaped slave hangs for the crime, but Savill is convinced they have executed the wrong man.

Lodging with the respected Wintour family, Savill senses the mystery deepening. Judge Wintour’s beautiful daughter-in-law, Arabella, hides a tragedy in her past, while his son plans a dangerous mission into enemy territory. And what of Mr Noak, the enigmatic clerk seemingly bent on a dubious course of his own?

One thing is clear – the killing in Canvas Town was just the start of a trail of murder, and it’s leading directly to Savill…
