The Frozen River Thames gives up its secrets

Christmas, 1669. In the grip of the coldest winter for years, the Thames is frozen from bank to bank and London celebrates with the traditional Frost Fair held on its broad back. Among the throng are Christopher Redmayne, an ambitious young architect, and his good friend, Constable Jonathan Bale. But the pair make a chilling discovery: the frozen corpse of a naked man embedded in the ice. Christopher is further drawn into the mystery when his own brother is accused of the murder. With his brother facing execution, the architect must risk all he holds dear, both professionally and personally, to uncover the truth.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fans of the prolific Edward Marston (The Bawdy Basket, etc.) will welcome back architect Christopher Redmayne and constable Jonathan Bale in their fourth Restoration mystery, The Frost Fair. Since the chief suspect in the murder of an Italian fencing master found below the frozen Thames is Redmayne's own brother, the young architect has no choice but to try and prove the accused innocent.

Unfortunately, Christopher's brother, drunk, threatening, and angry, is accused of the crime. A fabulous fourth in this historical series. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
