Many believe the Devil himself has entered Joseph Makepeace, the latest victim of a 'great fog,' that darkens the skies over England. When Joseph's children are found murdered, suspicions are confirmed: evil is abroad. Dr. Thomas Silkstone is not one to heed superstition. But when he arrives at the estate of widow Lady Lydia Farrell, he finds it's not just her livestock at risk. A shroud of mystery surrounds Lydia's lost child, a natural disaster fills the skies with smoke and ash.

The author has a great talent for getting the reader "involved". From the very first page you are thrown into 16th century England during a time of a sinister dark fog. I could almost feel myself getting breathless for lack of clean air. How are they ever going to get out of this?
Dr. Thomas Silkstone is the main character and very endearing......he keeps a pet rat in his lab. Things we can all relate to.
This was an intriguing read and a great who-done-it.
