SECOND OPINION: The Last Hours by Minette Walters

Review published on November 24, 2017.

1346 – all hell breaks loose – setting the scene for this enthralling novel.

Best known for her thrillers, Minette Walters has written an enthralling novel about how the Black Death affects a small community in Dorset. There are many contrasting and interesting characters from lords to serfs, all well-developed and contributing to the plot. The story develops very nicely with intrigues, murder, lies and suspicion. There is plenty to enjoy and it is definitely a page-turner.

If I had a gripe, it is the words To Be Continued at the end, although it works easily as a stand-alone book.

Paul Allard 5/5
