Kathyrn Swinbrooke, physician, herbalist, and leech, makes this period piece seem like a series of anachronisms, but it's well worth the time to delve into this exciting Medieval mystery by one of my favorite authors P.C. Dougherty writing as C.L. Grace. The author is able, due to his expertise in this period of English history (he holds a doctorate from Oxford), to make his tales sound genuine and forthcoming. It's interesting, too, to see him portray Edward IV and Queen so vividly and, with a keen sense of awareness, gives us an insight into the Future King, Richard Duke of Gloucester. Little does Edward realize his short lived tenure!
A good read!
