Delighted to be on Lesley Kelly’s book blog tour for Death at the Plague Museum. I was hoping to have the What Book feature and a review for you today but I am reading the book at the moment I just have a wee bit to go and I wanted to savour it and not rush it. So I will have a review feature for you too, probably early next week. Today though as I said Lesley took part in our What Book feature. .
Back of the Book
The pandemic is spreading.
On Friday, three civil servants leading Virus policy hold a secret meeting at the Museum of Plagues and Pandemics. By Monday, two are dead and one is missing.
up to Mona and Bernard of the Health Enforcement Team to find the missing
official before panic hits the streets.
