I got this book on a whim and was totally pleased with the book. In fact after reading this book I have been tracking down the others in the series and finding my self enthralled with the politics of the church and state in this time period of British history. You find yourself caring about the main characters and wanting to know how they progress in their lives.
An easy read, this book is a medieval murder mystery. A good account of medieval life and the power and influence of the Catholic church in 1363. The hero, Owen Archer is in a series of books by this author. I enjoyed it. Geny
