Praise for Searcher of the Dead
"Solid...Readers who relish details of daily life in a Tudor town and dialogue littered with "zounds" and "good morrow" will enjoy this story most; romance fans will savor the budding attraction between Bess and Kit. Herriman is off to a promising start with this Tudor historical."
--Publishers Weekly

"Wonderfully atmospheric. Herriman transports us to Tudor England with the skill of a master. Historical mystery fans will rejoice!"
-Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of Death in St. Petersburg
