  • The Nightingale Gallery

    I found myself just as puzzled as the unlikely pair of investigators as the death rate keeps rising. They managed to unravel the tangled threads and kept me in the dark. There's more than meets the eye to these medieval investigators as the plot develops.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • excellent historical murder mystery.

    Excellent.I enjoy historical fiction when its well researched and portrays a realistic picture of life at the times and here you can almost smell the filth of the streets..This is a great locked room murder mystery with a few more murders thrown in for good measure .Likeable believable central characters and a well written and told tale.I have already bought the next in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Murder in Medieval London

    The most interesting elements in this book lie in its description of Medieval London and in the portrayal of the two main characters, a Falstaffian coroner and a Dominican friar with his doubts and his guilt. You really feel like you are there with them among all the sights and particularly the smells ! What is less effective is the intrigue itself, not a very credible one.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Right Rollicking Mystery

    Right from the start I felt transported back to the stinking, crowded streets of 13th century London. Sir John, the Coroner and his scribe, Athelstan the friar, were portrayed to perfection. We learned about their inner faults and foibles along with their excellent powers of deduction. A gripping tale which keeps you in the dark to the end.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • really enjoyed this book

    Great story that pulls you into the sights (and smells) of the time very descriptively. Proper mystery, keeps you guessing
