4.0 out of 5 stars A nun with attitude!, 15 Jan 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sempster's Tale (Sister Frevisse Medieval Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
FIFTEENTH in series and still going strong...If you haven't become involved with Margaret Frazer's evocative stories of the 1400s then please taste and see. She is extraordinarily thorough in her research and each detail - clothing worn, the state of the streets - is convincing, as is the story-line - riots in London, a passionate love affair, secret lives, and all the unguessed-at background to murder.

Dame Frevisse has murders to solve without the aid of any modern techniques - only her ability to ask questions, to observe and to reason. The sheer variety of her experiences is hugely entertaining, and never far-fetched. That said, this is not the best of the books: though the characters are sharply-observed, and very real, other stories have a wider scope which touches on a wider landscape. But if you enjoy these books you will want to read this one straight through without stopping ... just like all the others!
