4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Medieval Murder Mystery, 28 Aug 2006
This review is from: The Tavern in the Morning (Hawkenlye Mystery) (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.
