    Joliffe On His Own

    In continuing her series on the company of players she has constructed mysteries for, this book seems to signal a change for Margaret Frazer in that she sends Joliffe off on his own at the behest of Bishop Beaufort to France and into the middle of a war. He is training to be a spy and the book is full of many tight instances one would expect in any spy-thriller story, no matter what century it is placed within. Frazer doesn't disappoint. The only thing that was distracting for me was that I kept wondering how he would ever be re-united with the group of players we've seen him with in the earlier books in this series. The book contains good suspense to keep one focused, however, and the reader can't help but wonder where this spy training will ultimately take Joliffe. Frazer keeps you in suspense right up to the end. Well worth the read if you like Medieval mysteries plus spy-thrillers with a bit of romance thrown in. I like Margaret Frazer and have been reading her books for quite a while.
