I really enjoyed this book, it is slightly different from the other Kate Ellis books I've read before, where they mix modern day and history. This was set in the middle ages but was as compelling and gripping as a modern day mystery. Couldn't put it down.

The main character is a female which I found unusual for an historical "detective" story. I enjoyed the descriptions of Liverpool and I was interested to read about the way the ex-monastery staff had to find a living after the Dissolution. The story kept my interest and the characters were quite well developed. My test is whether I would buy another book by the author and the answer is yes.

I've not read anything by this author before, but as I enjoyed this book I would be inclined to choose another book by her. A good story with enough detail to paint the picture but not so much that it takes you away from the plot.

Having enjoyed all Kate Ellis's other books, I was disappointed with this one. The problem with many detective-style books is how can the amateur detective get all the information to crack the crime? The heroine in this book, Lady Katheryn a 15th century ex-abbess, was not at all convincing. Kate Ellis has written most of her books with a policeman doing the detecting - a much better idea for her to work with - and much better books altogether. See The Merchant's House (The Wesley Peterson Series)

Just finished this book and although quite enjoyable certainly not the best tudor murder mystery I have read. Interesting plot, but slow in places and a little fuffy. Not much substance and very easy to read. I found myself drifting away from the story and having to reread paragraphs I had missed.
If cheap on the Kindle I would probably read another book by the same author just to see what the future holds for the main character.
If the book costs less than a pound to buy give it a go, but don't waste lots of money on this book.

If it wasn't for the somewhat tired concept of the prioress travelling England with her small but talented entourage and solving mysteries in the towns she visits I would have given this story a 5 star rating. That aside it is a very readable work that takes us into the lives of ordinary people of the period in which it is set and the story is full of innovation and very imaginative.

Set in the Middle Ages, the story weaves its path through the life of the Liverpool area in the reign of Henry VIII. A mystery killer is abroad and capable of the most gruesome crimes. The story takes back and forth across the River Mersey and we visit the lives of garrison soldiers, minor nobles, disenfranchised clergy and ordinary folk of the period.

A rattling good tale rich in very realistic historical content.

Set at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries; a who done it. Ex nuns and monks bereft of their way of life, some given a pension, others who dared to protest are destitute.

Some are less than holy and into the mix comes a monk who is not at all what he seems. The Pilgrimage of Grace and its dire after effects have already occurred. The land is in an upheaval.

It is a well written book, most enjoyable.
