About the Author

Evie Hawtrey is a Yank by birth but a sister-in-spirit to her fierce and feminist London detective, DI Nigella Barker. Evie splits her time between Washington DC, where she lives with her husband, and York, UK, where she enjoys living in history, lingering over teas, and knocking around in pubs.


Praise for And By Fire
"[Readers will] root for both heroines."

"[An] atmospheric, absorbing mystery."
--First Clue

Bones meets the Restoration Court in Evie Hawtrey's And By Fire, a taut dual-timeline mystery that races along at the pace of an inferno! When London detective Nigella Parker teams up with her Scotland Yard ex-lover to solve a tricky arson case, she never imagines it will lead her to a centuries-old mystery . . . and another pair of unlikely sleuths from the court of Charles II. As Nigella and her partner race through 21st century London to find a serial killer who sculpts in fire-burned flesh, and a 17th century fireworks-maker and royal lady-in-waiting struggle to find the truth behind the destruction of St. Paul's during the deadly Great Fire of London, all four lives will hang in the balance. Fresh, dynamic, and crisply researched, And By Fire will appeal to histfic fans and mystery readers alike--I couldn't put this one down!
--Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network

"You'll smell the smoke, taste the ashes, and feel the tension as you race through this exquisitely researched crime thriller. The plot twists and unforgettable images evoked by Evie Hawtrey's And By Fire will linger long after you turn the last page!"
--Ellen Marie Wiseman, New York Times bestseller of The Orphan Collector

"You'll burn through the pages of this time-twisty thriller!"
--Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award winning author of A Madness So Discreet

"Two determined women, separated by more than three centuries, struggle to uncover a deadly secret that burns at the heart of London. This is a taut and suspenseful read, rich in history and human drama. You won't soon forget it!"
--Nancy Bilyeau, author of The Blue
