Three Fires
Three Fires by Denise Mina (Birlinn, 2023)

Historical Fiction

Three Fires by Denise Mina (ISBN: 9781846976384, hardback) has a link to another BOOKMARK event author, DV Bishop. His latest historical crime novel, Ritual of Fire (recommended earlier this year), is set in medieval Florence and references the Dominican friar Savonarola – a hell-fire preacher and anti-corruption campaigner. In Three Fires, Denise Mina reimagines Savonarola’s life and the events that lead to the Bonfire of the Vanities: a febrile time that holds many modern-day echoes.
