“McIntosh's characterizations and period detail are first rate and bode well for future entries in this series.”—Publishers Weekly
“The next Cunningham adventure is to be welcomed.”—Historical Novels Review
Novice lawyer Gil Cunningham finds his true vocation not as a priest but as an investigator.
This meticulously researched historical mystery is the debut of a medieval Scottish investigator. Gil Cunningham is a recently qualified lawyer whose family expects him to enter the priesthood. At the May Day dancing at Glasgow Cross, Gil notices an attractive woman who is subsequently murdered. When he finds the body of the woman in the new building under construction at Glasgow Cathedral, he is asked to investigate. The corpse was the runaway wife of cruel, unpleasant nobleman John Semphill. She had left him to live with a blind harper whom she bore an infant son. With the help of Maistre Pierre, the French master mason whose lovely daughter has captured his heart, Gil identifies a callous multiple murderer that no one would have suspected.
Born and brought up in Lanarkshire, Pat McIntosh lived and worked in Glasgow for many years before settling on the West Coast. The Harper’s Quine is the first in the Gil Cunningham medieval mystery series.
