About The Book

The treasury’s coffers are bare and tensions with the powerful Dutch Republic are boiling over. And now, an investigator sent by the King to look into corruption at the Royal Navy has been brutally murdered. Loathe to leave the pleasures of London, Samuel Pepys is sent dragging his feet to Portsmouth to find the truth about what happened.
Aided by his faithful assistant, Will Hewer, he soon exposes the killer. But has he got the right person? The truth may be much more sinister. And if the mystery isn’t solved in time, then England could be thrown into a war that would have devastating consequences


My Thoughts

I’ll start by saying that I didn’t know of the famous Samuel Pepys before this book, but it made me want to discover more about this man and his background. 
This is quite an interesting read; atmospheric and intriguing, it transports you to 17th Century England; a moment where London was dark and dangerous. But it makes the story more realistic and twisted, the author did an amazing job with the description of the odours and the poor background, you feel transported to the centre of the story. But let’s be honest, the story is not a happy one, there’s a lot of action and mystery to keep all the characters entertained while the reader discovers their story and secrets.
I have to say that this is a very interesting book, it’s easy to lose track of time while you discover the mysterious Samuel Pepys life and keep wondering if this diary could be a little bit of true…
