Oh, what a tangled plot. But that is certainly appropriate, as the plot centers around the wool trade.

Owen Archer and his wife Lucie, assisted by a number of others, eventually solve it all, but without the usually required complete happy ending. People get hurt. This includes nice people and some not-so-nice but not-so-bad.

And we find that churchmen are just as susceptible to temptation as they are today.

Only my second book, but I am really enjoying the series.

From the back cover: High summer, 1365 - and York is glorious with pageantry for the Feast of Corpus Christi. But wool merchant Will Crounce, who acts in "The Last Judgement," meets his maker all too soon, his throat slit in the shadow of the great cathedral. When Crounce's severed hand is found in fellow-merchant Gilbert Ridley's tavern lodging, the Archbishop calls in Owen Archer. Second in the Owen Archer series.

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. Owen and the rest of the characters are so believable; Owen has his faults, but strives to do what is right. This second book in the series takes place in 1365.
