Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ellis Peters [has] a cohort of pretenders snapping her heels. Most impressive of the bunch is Candace Robb." —Time Out (London)

"A gripping historical mystery." —Publishers Weekly

"Excellent...Ms. Robb has brought [actual historical characters] to life with great style."

Mostly Murder

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.

    Wonderful, well-crafted tale! Hurrah!

    How can I be the first to write a review on this fabulous book?! It is a very enjoyable story, rich with period detail, but more importantly with richly written characters who interest the reader and have truly believable personalities. No one is all good or all evil!
