Overview

Owen Archer, the intriguing Welsch archer-turned-sleuth, is back-in another riveting challenge to Ellis Peters!

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 Own Archer.

To unravel a second murder, and the grisly warning of another severed hand, Owen will need his sharp mind, his bow and arrows, and even his wife Lucie's apothecary skills. For soon he will be drawn into a tangle of greed, treachery, and passion that runs from Ridley and the wool trade all the way to the royal court.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Robb puts the history back into the historical mystery." —Kirkus Reviews
Margaret Flanagan
Owen Archer, apothecary apprentice and master spy, returns in a new fourteenth-century mystery involving palace intrigue and high treason. After Will Crounce, a prominent member of the powerful Mercer's Guild, is ruthlessly murdered, his severed hand is deposited in the lodgings of his best friend and business partner to serve as a warning and a threat to the close-knit community of wool merchants. Commissioned by Archbishop Thoresby to investigate the heinous crime, the redoubtable Archer becomes enmeshed in a perplexing web of avarice, chicanery, and deceit. When the assassinations and the mutilations begin to multiply and the evidence appears to implicate the king's much-despised mistress, Owen begins to fear for his own safety and well-being. Rich in authentic historical detail, this taut thriller will appeal to the growing legion of medieval mystery fans.

    Fabulous historical mystery!!!

    Book 2 - What do I like the most about Robb's Owen Archer series? The characters! I care so much and am so interested in what they are going to do and say. And the mystery in Lady Chapel unfolds so deliciously! I love the series and am now on number five. I cannot imagine why everyone who loves mysteries isn't talking about Candace Robb! The Lady Chapel is even better than the first book, Apothecary Rose, and the best part is they're getting better and better along the way.
