"Dark Stars"

CS Quinn is a bestselling author and journalist for The Times, The Guardian and The Mirror, alongside many magazines. Prior to journalism and fiction, her background in historic research won prestigious postgraduate funding from the British Art Council.

Combining historical research with far-flung travel experiences helped her create The Thief Taker series.

Quinn applied the Page 69 Test to Dark Stars, the third book in the series, and reported the following:
On page 69 we’re getting to know scary Judge Walters, who enjoys publicly drowning pirates at Wapping Docks. I guess this page fairly represents the menacing b-story, but there’s a fair bit more colour (I’d like to think) and thrills happening in the main story with hero Charlie and heroine Lily.
