Plague Land

Plague Land - S. D. Sykes wanted to like it but no, didn't really dislike it either, it fell soundly into meh.

Oswald de Lacy has inherited the family estate. He wasn't supposed to, he was in a convent while he had two older brothers who were hale and hearty, but then the plague struck and took with it his father and two brothers and now he has to learn how to be the lord of the manor.

When one girl, who is rumoured to be one of his father's by-blows turns up dead and the locals are blaming the supernatural, he has to investigate and the twists and turns continue to complicate things.

And I honestly didn't care what happened to the characters. The writer isn't bad and I wouldn't reject another book by them out of hand but I'm not hunting more up.
