1634 - As passengers arrive to board The Saardam - an East India Company ship, a leper with no tongue, shouts that the ship and all who sail in her will be cursed, before he is engulfed in flames.
As the ship sets sail for Amsterdam with its nervous crew and passengers, the devil marks three people out for death.
Set on the high seas, this is a fast paced historical crime with a few twists and turns that you won't see coming...
This was the first book I've read by Stuart Turton and I absolutely loved it, and would definitely read more if he decides to do another with these characters.
