Company of Liars by Karen Maitland
On this day of ill omen,
Plague makes its entrance. Within weeks, swathes of Engalnd will be darkened by death's shadow as town and villages burn to the ringing church bells.
While Panic and Suspicion flood the land, a small band of travellers come together to outrun the breakdown in law and order. But when one of their number is found hanging from a tree, the chilling discovery confirms that something more sinister than the plague is in their midst. And as the runes warn of trechary, it appears no one is quite what they seem, least of all the child rune reader, who mercilessly compels each of her companions to tell their stories, and face the consequences.
... a scarred trader in holy relics, a conjuror, two musicians, and a deformed storyteller for company.
