By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Jun 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a series of linked stories involving crime, by a variety of authors. Previous collaborations have tended to focus on an artefact such as a sword through the ages. This however concentrates on the town of Bath and particularly a hill outside it called in modern times Solsbury Hill.
We are told that the Romans built villas near here, King Arthur fought a battle here, then moving forward various thievery and murders occurred too. A monastery is the site of one tale, the unwrapping of an Egyptian mummy is the focus of another.
My favourite story was about the strolling player who came with the King's Men from the Globe to put on plays in Bath.
The tale of the abbey was just a matter of here are the suspects, who could it be; while the others all told proper adventure stories.

A decent read awaits with a variety of styles and periods.

"On Solsbury Hill, only those who are pure in heart can survive a night when the moon is full..."

'Hill of Bones' brings together a group of arguably the finest murder mystery writers of the day, the thread this time weaving the stories together being the mysterious and legendary Solsbury Hill in the South West. This is a compelling collection, with each story taking us through a different time and protagonists, solving mysteries and sinister murders along the way.

The Prologue - written by Philip Gooden (Nick Revill Shakespearean Theatre mystery writer), the story takes us on a thrilling journey through the eyes of a Saxon warrior, fighting for King Arthur at the close of his great career, and introduces a strange knife with a bear on its hilt.
Act One - by Susanna Gregory (author of the Matthew Bartholomew Cambridge 14th Century mysteries). King John is on the throne and when the prior of Bath Abbey is mysteriously struck down on the feared Solsbury Hill one moonlit night, this unpopular monarch sends one of his knights along with his clever wife to investigate the death of another unloved leader. They quickly discover that an abbey is just as rife with ambition and evil than the rest of the outside world.
Act Two - Bernard Knight, author of the late 12th Century Crowner John mysteries, stays in Bath Abbey to tell the tale of stolen treasures, strange sights and superstitions, and how two friends from the town pit their wits against evil to save the life of their innocent comrade, forced to flee to the feared Solsbury Hill in order to avoid hanging.
Act Three - by Karen Maitland (writer of A Company of Liars, A Gallows Curse). A shipwreck on a stormy night provides a village with what they believe to be a prophet of God, a sole survivor nailed to the mast.
