Great Historical Detail
on 14 November 2011
This is another great tale about Hugh De Singleton. The story is about a supposed suicide of a character from a previous book and about Hugh's determination to prove that it was a murder. I was a little disappointed that there is less of Hugh as a surgeon in this book, as I like the descriptions of medieval medical practices, however Hugh remains a great character. The level of historical detail is fantastic and I found myself flicking to the glossary to find out what all the medieval terms and phrases meant. I could almost imagine myself there.
The book is the 4th in a series however I think it would work just as well as a standalone book so don't be put off if you haven't read the rest.
