Company of Liars
Company of Liars is a historical novel by Karen Maitland, set in the fourteenth century. The setting is a Britain which is being decimated by a pandemic known as the Plague.
This novel reached a large number[weasel words] of people in Britain due to the first few chapters being given away with The Daily Telegraph as a mini-paperback, in 2008.[citation needed]
The novel is set in the year 1348, when England was in the grip of the Black Plague. In a world ruled by faith and fear, nine desperate strangers, brought together by chance, attempt to outrun the certain death that is running inexorably toward them.

From Camelot, the relic-seller who will become the group's leader, to Cygnus, the one-armed story-teller... from the strange, silent child called Narigorm to a painter and his pregnant wife, each has a secret. None are what they seem. And one among them conceals the darkest secret of all- Propelling these liars to a destiny they never saw coming...
