The Thief Taker- A Goodreads Review

The Thief Taker (The Thief Taker #1)The Thief Taker by C.S. Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In the middle of London, during the plague, Charlie Tuesday investigates a ritual murder, only to be framed as both a witch and a killer. He escapes, but then he is forced to find the real slayer to clear his name, and well, live. Of course, the killing is part of a web of mysteries and conspiracies and everything is more intense because of the sickness and the chaos it causes. Oh, yeah, there is also this key that Charlie wears around his neck. It is his only clue to a mother who abandoned him and it is somehow connected to the witchcraft and the strange doings in the city.
There’s also a romance of sorts. For me, it didn’t quite work. I wasn’t fond of the woman he fell for. Yet, I kept reading because I was rooting for Charlie and I had to see how all the mysteries came together.
If you like historical whodunnits, this is a read for you.
