Book Description

1 Jun 2007
It is winter 1372, York. A man has drowned in the River Ouse after a skirmish with boys from St Peter's School. It soon becomes clear that his death was not an accident - but why would a humble pilot on the river be killed for possessing a young boy's purse? Suspicion falls on Father Nicholas Ferriby - Vicar of Weston and master of a small grammar school - who has already offended many with his unpopular beliefs. But is he really a murderer? One-eyed spy, Owen Archer, Captain of Archbishop Thoresby's guard and noted for solving many crimes, is quickly brought to the scene by his adoptive son, Jasper. Clear that the pilot has been killed for more than a purse, an increasingly cantankerous Thoresby reluctantly agrees to let Owen investigate the man's murder. Torn between solving the crime and looking after his wife, Lucie, who is expecting their long-awaited third child, Owen is soon taken away from home. When another body is found in the river and Owen and Jasper get nearer to the truth, they find their own lives in jeopardy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Owen Archer Books are always a Good Read 19 May 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
As I only live 20 miles from York where most of these books are set, I can perhaps visualise better than most the area of England the books take place in. Many of the streets of York mentioned in the books are still there and of the course so is the Minster.

Owen Archer the lead character in the book is a Welsh longbow man who works for a high church dignitary and spends some of his spare time helping in his wife's apothecary shop. He is called upon by William of Wykeham, the Bishop of Winchester, to help him with a serious problem. I myself am interested in this period of English history and the author's authenticity cannot be questioned and her excellent story telling is spellbinding. I cannot recommend her books highly enough and I am always eager for the next offering.

The book takes place in the city of York in the year 1372. A man has drowned in a fight with some boys from St. Peter's School. It becomes apparent that his death was no accident, the man had been poisoned. The question is why would a poor river pilot be killed. Suspicion fall on the master of a small grammar school, Father Nicholas Ferriby. But is he a man of the cloth capable of murder? And if so why? OOwen Archerwen Archer is quickly informed of the death and his master, Thorseby reluctantly allows Archer to investigate the murder. When another man is found dead in the river and Owen and his son Jasper get near to solving the mystery they find that there lives are also in jeopardy and Owen is torn between solving the crime and being at his wife Lucy's side as she prepares to give birth to their third child.

Format:Paperback
The previous two in this series were better than the previous couple and this positive trend continues here. I will forget the plot very quickly but the characters are as great as ever.
