Overview

An excellent medieval whodunit by the author of The Unquiet Bones and A Corpse at St Andrew's Chapel

Some valuable books have been stolen from Master John Wyclif, the well known scholar and Bible translator. He calls upon his friend and former pupil, Hugh de Singleton, to investigate. Hugh's investigation leads him to Oxford where he again encounters Kate, the only woman who has tempted him to leave bachelor life behind, but Kate has another serious suitor. As Hugh's pursuit of Kate becomes more successful, mysterious accidents begin to occur. Are these accidents tied to the missing books, or to his pursuit of Kate?

One of the stolen books turns up alongside the drowned body of a poor Oxford scholar. Another accident? Hugh certainly doesn’t think so, but it will take all of his surgeon’s skills to prove.

So begins another delightful and intriguing tale from the life of Hugh de Singleton, surgeon in the medieval village of Bampton. Masterfully researched by medieval scholar Mel Starr, the setting of the novel can be visited and recognized in modern-day England. Enjoy more of Hugh’s dry wit, romantic interests, evolving faith, and dogged determination as he pursues his third case as bailiff of Bampton.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When valuable books are stolen from the collection of Master John Wyclif, the Bible translator and scholar enlists the help of former student Hugh de Singleton (A Corpse at St. Andrew's Chapel) to find the culprit. The investigation takes Hugh to Oxford, where the books are discovered near the body of a drowned student. VERDICT Romance and intrigue are the cornerstones of this excellent historical series entry. Its well-defined characters and attention to historical detail will appeal to fans of Ariana Franklin.
