Product Details

Praise

“Wonderfully imagined and wonderfully written, this is an impeccable historical mystery, and also a timely and timeless parable about working inside a paranoid and repressive society. Superb!” —Lee Child

The Bloodless Boy is an extraordinary achievement–an almost hallucinatory depiction of 17th century London swimming in political intrigue and the voracious curiosity of early modern scientists.  Rarely does fiction feel so much like time travel.” —Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia, House on Fire and Judgment


“A fantastic historical mystery set in an utterly fascinating milieu. I really enjoyed this one.” —Adrian McKinty, New York Times bestselling author of The Chain


‘An intriguing confection of history and fiction. The novel cleverly combines murder investigation and political intrigue with the pioneering scientific work of Robert Hooke and his colleagues at the Royal Society. Bravo!’—Andrew Taylor, author of The Ashes of London

“Absolutely gripping. A wonderfully researched and thrilling ride through one of London’s most fascinating epochs.” —Cate Quinn, author of Black Widows

The Bloodless Boy is a gripping and beautifully written history-mystery which brims with atmosphere and menace.” —Martin Edwards, Edgar Award-winning author of The Golden Age of Murder and The Gallows Court

“Lloyd fuses an infectious love of language and history with spectacular action, an irresistible young hero, and an ingenious mystery. What a delightfully erudite, impeccably well-crafted novel.” —Dan Mayland, author of The Doctor of Aleppo

“It’s extremely difficult to pull off a historical crime novel that manages to be accurate enough, exciting enough and smart enough to satisfy as thoroughly as The Bloodless Boy, but Robert J. Lloyd makes it look easy.” —Christopher Fowler, author of the Bryant and May mysteries

The Bloodless Boy is a cracker that had me gripped from the first chapter and me on edge until the end.” —Julian Woodford, author of The Boss of Bethnal Green

“Lloyd really excels in his descriptions of London, and his understanding of Seventeenth Century science and medicine at the dawn of the Enlightenment.” —Jemahl Evans, author of the Sir Blandford Candy Adventure Series.
