Description

There is a secret hidden within a body, burning within the flames, that will change history forever. 2014: In the French city of Orleans, a man's charred corpse is found in a burned-out hotel, stripped of all ID. Police captain Ines Picaut must hunt down his killer before others fall prey to the fire. She has only one clue: the name of a woman who has been dead for over five hundred years. 1429: Joan of Arc is taking the war to the English. They want her dead but the only way to reach her is through a fiercely loyal inner circle - until undercover spy Tomas Rustbeard finally earns her trust... The myths of the past hold the key to the mystery of the present, but how many must die before the truth is laid bare?show more

Review quote

"A clever, gripping thriller - a Da Vinci Code for those who like their prose to be elegant as well as page-turning" -- Antonia Senior * The Times - Best Historical Fiction of 2015 * "Magnificent...Clever, gripping, and a nifty thriller to boot" * Daily Mail * "Into the Fire is a wonderful blend of fast and furious action, bravura storytelling, a palpable sense of place - Orleans past and present - and a whodunnit that will keep you guessing until the final pages. Fabulous." -- Kate Mosse "Wonderful...Combines the two things I love most: thrillers and historical fiction" * Daily Express * "Expertly blends a very plausible solution to a genuine historical mystery with a compulsive contemporary thriller. The result, as the title suggests, is intoxicatingly fiery reading" -- Robert Goddardshow more
