Book Description

18 July 2013 Gil Cunningham Murder Myst 10
The crows are gathering above Glasgow, watching the movements of the clergy and townspeople alike...Tied to St Mungo's Cross by the cathedral to be cured of her madness overnight by the saint, the young woman is found in the morning beaten and strangled, still tied to the cross. But is she who she seems to be? And who would flout the saint's protection like this? Gil Cunningham must trace the dead woman and find her enemies, track down the thieves and murderers and identify the watchers in the shadows, particularly the elusive fourth person who holds the secret of what happened that night. Questioning cathedral staff and apprentice boys, pilgrims and tradesmen, he uncovers only more puzzles. And then there is another death. How is it connected to the first? While his wife Alys deals with the tensions within their family, Gil has to untangle the threads of the mystery to find the solution to all the crimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Delivers 22 July 2012
By Zeb
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do enjoy this series - having happened on it by chance in the Kindle sale.
Now I have read them all; the characters are well written; historically they are fascinating
and the author gives us a lot of detail. The dog Socrates is brilliant, his portrayal makes me
smile. On top of this a good read and a dense plot. This time a young girl is tied to St Mungo's
cross to try & cure her madness; she vanishes but who is this in her place? Several gruesome
murders later . . . Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Continued Excellence. 23 July 2013
By K. C. Simm VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am really glad I found these. So often we are told that a successor to Ellis Peters has been found. So often are we given a new hyped author of historical fiction to play with our tastes. And yet only rarely do we find one of this calibre.
The stories are clever, well researched, (which in my view is an essential component of such stories; I admit to being an historical pedant) and plotted well. They keep our interest throughout. Well they keep my interest but even so that could be seen as a fair yardstick.
We are sympathetic with the main protagonists and feel enough interest in the puzzles that are presented. Nowhere in these books did I feel, (as I do so often) that was a bit obvious. She or he did it after reading the first few chapters. Or at least if I am given a few hints they are subtle ones and keep me guessing.
Old Glasgow is a revelation. Descriptions are rich and feel true. Characterisation is spot on and all the main protagonists are well seen.
The language is going to be an issue, either for or against. I found I could understand the Scots well and the Gaelic well enough in context and neither distracted from the story or enjoyment of it.
Without being gushy this is an excellent read for intelligent adults.

By Jo Bennie VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Maister Gil Cunningham is Blacader's quaestor, the man in medieval Glasgow charged with investigating suspicious deaths and bringing the perpetrators to justice, in effect a detective. A woman has been tied to St Mungo's Cross to cure her melancholic madness, not unusual in itself, but now she is dead. Gil's investigation rapidly becomes more convoluted, McIntosh weaves together medieval Scots with early Glasweigian life where the church ordered the hours of the day and the law of the land into an engrossing mystery with plenty of twists and turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Gil Cunningham mystery 25 Aug 2012
By P.G.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed all the books in Pat Mcintosh's Gil Cunningham series, and this is no exception. It is more local than some, set squarely in the town of Glasgow and its cathedral area. The town is well depicted, and the sometimes strange customs of the time are brought vividly to life. Her style is good, and I never cease to marvel at her convincing and readable portrayal of the Scots dialect. The characters are creatures of their own age, and yet timelessly human.
Perhaps I am a little surprised that the Alys who was so efficiently managing her father's household at seventeen should now be so devastated at the fairly normal events of married life, and I was startled to discover that Pierre was married, having noticed no hint of this in earlier books. However, these are minor matters, and overall this is, like the other Gil Cunningham books, an excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another 'must just finish this chapter' book 11 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe it is because I have read all the previous books and now know the characters, I don't know, but each one is better than the previous. A tangled story that kept me guessing to the end. Could wait to finish it but dreaded coming to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historical Scottish Murder Mystery 20 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all Pat Mcintosh's previous novels with relish as they usually have well defined characters and a good plot. I found some of this book difficult to follow and was disappointed that Alys did not have a more prominent role. However I would recommend this book as a fairly good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good read 16 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can never fault the Gil Cunningham `mysteries they give such a good feel of the time in which they are placed. One can nearly smell and hear the early Glasgow background.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have I missed a book??? 6 Jan 2013
By ireneL
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really do enjoy this series and chose this book to read over Christmas, and have not been disappointed. However I felt as though I had somehow missed a book, finding Alys at odds with her beloved father; at Pierre's marriage, which has appeared out of the blue. Also Gils sister's marriage has come and gone without mention. Is the author holding out on us and has another murder mystery covering these events hovering in the background just to tantalise us.
