I have been a great fan of the Hew Cullen books since the first was published and have eagerly awaited each subsequent edition. This, the fourth, did not disappoint. The characters have become familiar, well-loved friends who have grown with each book. My advice would be to read the books from the start of the series - extremely cheap on kindle, thanks Ms McKay. Highly recommended to fans of Karen Maitland, S. J. Parris, Shona MacLean et al.

This is the 4th book in the series and has been the most difficult to follow. The plot was too convoluted and I nearly gave up Having stuck with it, it then ended too quickly. Will wait for the next one

I have enjoyed all the Hugh Cullen novels so far and this is no exception! The next in the series after Hugh has been trapped into working for Queen Elizabeth's spymaster, Francis Walsingham is eagerly awaited as is the fate of the vengeful brothers roger and James.

I've now read all 4 of Sheila McKay's Hew Cullen mysteries and have enjoyed them all, especially the development of Hew's character over the series. Look forward to reading other books by her

Like all of the Hew Cullen books, it takes a bit of getting into, but worth the effort. Attention to detail first class with lots of twists and turns. A good read

I enjoyed the story, which was intriguing and kept my attention & interest. I liked the use of the old language, some of which was familiar as there are similarities with Cumbrian. However, I was disappointed with the end. Whilst not being obvious, the culprit was revealed almost as an aside during the narrative and from then the conclusion was hurried & seemed to be hurried.
That said, I will still read the other books in the series.

Excellent book with a fantastic and knowledgeable prose (you get used to the sing-song metric sound of it after a while) which for me is the main feature drawing me to this author. I am expecially fascinated by the dialogues. Good plot and historical accuracy make this fourth volume a must read for lovers of adventures set in that particular period and setting. Awaiting the next one.

Another excellent offering from Shirley McKay. The core characters continue to engage, the historical aspects appeal and are accurately and well presented, and human nature, with all its strengths and frailties, lies at the heart of these books. Always look forward to a new book in this series, so keep at it, please!
