Overview

Death and the Arrow (Tom Marlowe Series #1) by Chris Priestley, Chris Priestly

A gripping historical mystery, full of 18th century atmosphere.

Fifteen-year-old Tom lives in the murky city of London where he helps his father run a print shop. Among the customers is wise old Dr. Harker, a retired physician and seafarer, whose patient demeanour and fascinating tales endear him to Tom. Both Tom and Harker become intrigued by a murder in the city where the victim is pierced by an arrow and left holding an illustrated card of "Death and the Arrow." The mystery deepens after more "Death and the Arrow" victims are discovered, and Tom cannot rest until he has uncovered the truth behind the murders. This atmospheric venture into the eighteenth-century will fascinate and engage readers ten-years-old and up.

This is a great mystery about a boy trying to find his friends murderer. It's a bone chilling-book from cover to cover. Death and the Arrow is a great book that I would recomend to anyone who likes mysteries.
