Product description

Review

Close attention will reward readers with well-researched historical information, from the minutiae of everyday living to the public events in the lives of the rich and powerful. Mystery buffs, however, are likely to reach the answer before Athelstan--Kirkus Reviews

Doherty mires the grisly action as firmly in mystery as he does the multitiered narrative in the mud, muck, and mayhem of medieval London poised on the brink of the Peasants' Revolt--Booklist

Will appeal to John Dickson Carr fans. With dozens of books to his credit, Doherty continues to impress--Publishers Weekly Starred Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Paul Doherty studied History at Liverpool and Oxford Universities, and is now headmaster of a school in Essex. He is the author of more than eighty historical mysteries including the Hugh Corbett, Mathilde of Westminster and Canterbury Tales medieval mystery series. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
