3.0 out of 5 stars A bitter honey 9 April 2009
By L. J. Roberts TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First Sentence: With the celebration of Eastertide at the end of March, a warm spring radiance had descended on Lincoln.

Templar Knight Bascot de Marins is recovering in the castle at Lincoln after eight years captivity and torture in the Holy Lands. Someone has poisoned a scribe of the castle and the family of a merchant in the town. The poison is traced to a high-grade honey and the poisonings were deliberate. It is also realized that the victims where not those intended. The first victim was to have been the castle's castellan, who asks for Bascot's help in finding the killer.

I very much enjoyed the first two books of this series, but the third wore a bit thin. It is a classic investigative mystery, which was well done, but short on dialogue and contained very little suspense. Although we know something of the primary characters, there is not a lot of depth provided to them. The sense of time and place was adequate but not rich or terribly evocative. In all, I'd have to say this was a good read, but not much more than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poisonous Happenings 22 Jun 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Once again Maureen Ash has come up with an intriguing plot. As before the detailed description of 12th century Lincoln is very interesting and adds to the tensions of the story. The plot starts rather slowly, but soon comes to the boil. All in all a very good book - following in the footsteps of Candace Robb.
