The bubonic plague strikes yet again and everyone is worried about the smell of death and other malodorous odors. Yet other people are dying due to other causes, such as murder.

Owen Archer has sent his children away, his wife is scared for them due to the death of a previous child from the plague and he is called on to investigate the murders when he should be comforting her.

While not as tense or deeply mysterious as previous stories in this series, it still pulls you in.
