Death of a Shipbuilder


Death of a Shipbuilder is historical fiction with an edge – both an immersive exploration of the atmospheric setting of seventeenth century London, and a gripping political mystery. This time, Tyler’s charismatic hero John Grey is caught up in the political intrigues surrounding the womanising, corrupt Samuel Pepys (you may have heard of him?). But what at first seems like a simple game of politics soon becomes something far more complicated – and murder is afoot. With his trademark wit and sleek writing, Tyler crafts a gripping historical thriller which will have you hooked to the very last page.
