About this title

Synopsis:

Elliot Vail is a floundering San Francisco stand-up comedian who will do anything for a cheap place to live. So when strange Edward Bockman offers him free rent in exchange for some odd dos and don'ts, Elliot thinks his luck is about to change. After all, despite Bockman's over-active imagination, head-to-toe Robin Hood costume and locked bedroom door, he seems nice enough.

Little does Elliot know that his new landlord is time-traveling to trysts with an ex-mistress of England's King Charles II . . . and that he'll soon be expected to rescue Bockman from a 17th-century prison and a deadly outbreak of the Black Plague.

Read what reviewers are writing about A PLAGUE OF SCOUNDRELS:

“You mix a time travel device with a high-tech genius, add a dram of Restoration England, include a dose of plague and a damsel in distress—a very lovely damsel I might add—and mix it up with a San Francisco comic . . . And what have you got? A very funny and fun story! I thoroughly enjoyed A Plague of Scoundrels.” — Dennis Erokan, Founder of the Bammy Awards

“Jon Cory’s witty debut novel is no ordinary romp down the river of time to seventeenth-century England. When a second-rate comedian meets a farmer’s clever daughter, the result is first-rate adventure that captures the meaning of life.” — Laurel Anne Hill, Author of Heroes Arise

“Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, big surprise. The plot took another direction and made me laugh. Lilly. Bockman. Grundel. Elliot. Excitement, humor, real characters, continuous surprises, romance, time travel, what more is there? A great read for summer, winter, spring or fall.” — Richard Cook, Owner, Sunrise Bookshop
