This is the 4th book in Candace Robb's Owen Archer series. It takes place in 1367. The historical background is very interesting discussing the later part of the Edward III's reign, but the mystery was not as good as the previous 3 books. I think she wanted to tell us about some historical facts and tried to weave a mystery around. Still enjoyable though.

This 14th century mystery series set in York is, in my humble opinion, ranked only behind the pinnacle of Medieval mysteries, Ellis Peters' Cadfael series. This one takes place in Windsor and York, 1367.
