#4 Roger the Chapman historical mystery in which Roger gets involved in investigating the deaths of two young children that were ruled to be death by a wandering band of vicious outlaws. But those close to the family in question aren't so sure, and Roger's curiosity along with his budding interest in the children's former nurse leads him down a dangerous path of investigation. Once again, I really enjoyed the "voice" of Roger, and the book seemed to go by much too quickly. I did figure out the mystery well in advance, though. Looking forward to the next in series.
