More About This Title A Cure for All Evils


Shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger Award, a page-turning historical mystery of politics and poison

London, 1792. The revolution in France is turning bloody and England's elite are gripped by the fear that it will spread. Josiah Crayley, who runs a successful business making patent medicines, is persuaded to run for Parliament. When customers die after using his Crayley's Cures tonic many are convinced that it is the work of French revolutionary spies—but could it have a political motive closer to home? Crayley sets out to uncover the truth, but to do so he must confront his own long-buried secrets and decide for himself whether extraordinary times ever justify murder.
