5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, 12 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Death Maze: Mistress of the Art of Death, Adelia Aguilar series 2 (Paperback)
The Death Maze is excellent both as a detective story and a historical novel.The plot is intriguing and well worked out and the characters are rounded human beings so that you care what happens. Although much of the plot is dark and potentially tragic, humour is used well to lighten the atmosphere without diminishing the seriousness of some of the themes. There is plenty of historical detail so that you have a real sense of place and period, but it is handled deftly so that you do not feel that you are being overwhelmed by the author's research. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Hamstead says:
Unfortunately a lot of that historical detail is utterly wrong - not least that Rosamund Clifford didn't actually die until 1176 and Henry and Eleanor were in Anjou, not England in the winter of 1172/1173.
