King's Bishop - Owen Archer Mystery Author:Candace Robb While on a mission to convince the abbots of Fountains and Rievaulx to support King Edward III's nomination of William of Wykeham to the bishopric of Winchester, Owen Archer's friend is accused of murder and Owen must prove that his friend is innocent.
If you have finished Ellis Peter's Brother Cadfael series and are looking for something comparable in quality in roughly the same time period, then read about Owen Archer, a creation of Candace Robb. Also a former soldier, and now an apprentice herbalist (sound familiar?), Captain Archer works part time as a spy and investigator for the Archbishop of Canterbury. Unlike Brother Cadfeal, Owen is married and has a daughter.
All are good, but, IMHO, book four in this series was the best yet.
