Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Continuation of the Owen Archer series of medieval English mysteries, in which a young nun apparently returns from the dead. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Medieval mystery aficionados will especially appreciate Owen Archer's third appearance. Archer's "boss," the Archbishop of York, asks him to investigate a nun who claims to have returned from the dead. Unfortunately for Owen, his search uncovers multiple murder. Fine work.
