Format: Paperback
Alys Clare has written many other novels under a different name. She is able to breathe new life into the medieval period. A period of history that many novelists take as their background subject. Alys Clare lives in Kent. This is the area in which the books are set.

This is the third book in the series of medieval novels by Alys Clare. The books are set around the Abbey of Hawkenlye and the lead characters are Sir Josse d'Aquin and Helewise the Abbess of Hawkenlye. The two have a friendship which has blossomed in the first two books and in an age when celibacy was not a prerequisite of the religious orders there is always the chance that this may take a different turn. However these are by no means love stories and I would not want to put anyone off reading these books by suggesting that they are. They are murder mysteries well written and well researched.

In this particular book Sir Josse is hunting a poisoner who has been using wolf's bane to kill his victims at the local hostelry in Tonbridge. To say anymore would be to spoil the plot for the reader.

Format: Hardcover
The plot is very believeable, with an almnost unguessable twist at the end. It is quickly paced, with absolutely no meaningless twaddle, such as you might find with P.D. James, and not too much over-researching, as you might find with Kathy Reichs, Simplistic, easy to read, understnad, and makes it easy to get to grips with historical terminology.

A good Alys Clare read but a little short, which left me wanting more. Sadly due to Amazons rules I had to add this last bit as one sentence was apparently too short

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. I found the atmosphere of the Plantagent times was very good. The relationships between the characters were beautifully developed. The story itself with its twists and turns built up to a thrilling and moving climax. I heartily recommend this book. I have not given 5 stars because I feel that in comparison with the "Brother Cadfael" stories the writing style was, at some points, a little less polished (e.g. third sentence in the book has no verb) and was ever so alightly intrusive.
