The Malignant Dead
by C L Raven
1645. The year Scotland died. The Bubonic Plague ravages Edinburgh. Soon there will be more people buried under Edinburgh than living in it. The council hires Alex McCrae, promising him one hundred pounds to cure the wretched pest. But a man who makes himself a hero, makes himself enemies. But the plague isn’t the only way to kill a man. And in the city of the dead it’s not just ghosts who return.
