By Keen Reader TOP 50 REVIEWER on 19 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
The Medieval Murderers is a group of published historical novel writers who in these books operate as a collaborative author, each writing a section of the book with a connecting theme. This is the tenth in the Medieval Murderers series, and all the books are really great reads. This book differs somewhat from the earlier Medieval Murderers books - normally there is a theme which is followed chronologically through the years by the historical characters utilised by the authors in their mainstream writing, or at least the period in which they normally write.

This book however follows more of a Chaucers' Canterbury Tales motif - a group of pilgrims heading for Walsingham to ask for relief and deliverance from the 1348 outbreak of Plague in the country are caught in a storm. Taking refuge in the Angel inn, they find themselves challenged to tell tales of what they believe the greatest sin is, that may explain the punishment of the Plague being inflicted on humanity. So, what follows are tales of the seven Sins:
Michael Jecks tells a tale of Lust
Ian Morson tells a tale of Greed
Ian Morston tells a tale of Gluttony
Susannah Gregory and Simon Beaufort tell a tale of Sloth
Philip Gooden tells a tale of Anger
Bernard Knight tells a tale of Envy
Karen Maitland tells a tale of Pride
(with a Prologue and an Epilogue).

These are, as always, great stories. The authors are all at the top of their games, and their writing contrasts and complements each others' as the tales progress. What the reader gets in sum is an offering of a great historical novel made up of a number of great historical novel sections by great historical writers. Definitely recommended, as are all the Medieval Murderers books. The first published one was The Tainted Relic, published in 2006. Each of the authors' works are also well worth investigating for their own series of books.

These stories are beginning to tire somewhat and I get the feeling that the authors are slowly running out of ideas. This book is boring and has nothing which grabs the reader and encourages them to turn the page and read another chapter. I struggled to finish the last book "The False Virgin" and unless I run out of reading material and find myself with nothing better to read then I will pick this book up again, until such times, it will be returning to the bookshelf unread and unloved.

The book arrived before the last date given and was well packaged. I bought the book as a stocking filler for my daughter as she has been reading the series, and is enjoying reading them.
