The Year is 1370. The main characters are the Duke of Lancaster's spy Owen Archer and Geoffrey Chaucer. This book takes place in Wales where the two have gone to recruit archers and inspect the Duke's fortifications. An unexpected death sets the two on a hunt for the killer.

This book is not quite as good as the previous ones as Archer's wife, Lucie, is left at home and her involvment in his cases adds an interesting twist which isn't present here. If you like Ellis Peters' books, you like this one.

I have to agree with another reviewer, this was a confusing story. I think it was a combination of too many sub-plots and too many Welsh names. I sometimes had problems figuring out who was who and where they were. Several times, the author mentioned a person doing or saying something and my reaction was "When did he come back into the story."

This one was a bit confusing...too many names that were similar. Or maybe it was just me...I didnt get who half the people in the story were until I read the authors notes. Is he a monk or a bard or both?
