When I found out that C. L. Grace is yet another pseudonym of Paul Doherty you could have knocked me down with the proverbial feather. How one man can be so prolific in his writing is beyond me (or is there more than one writer?), who knows. What is even more astounding is that his books are all consistently good and written with the authority of someone who knows their subject back to front.

It does not seem to matter to the author whether he is writing about medieval mystery (Hugh Corbett etc.), Ancient Egypt, Roman or Greek, the author always has a good tale to tell and the books are well researched down to the fine detail.

The Eye of God is the second novel in the series of books featuring Kathryn Swinbrooke, a physician and apothecary in fifteenth-century Canterbury. The books highlight the fact the women played a vital part in medicine at the time, only to be later excluded almost entirely in the centuries that followed.

The story revolves around a precious relic called the Eye of God. Shortly before his death, Richard Neville the Earl of Warwick gives the precious relic to his trusted man Brandon with instructions to take it to the monks that reside at Canterbury. Brandon is captured and held prisoner. He dies under mysterious circumstances but the Eye of God is nowhere to be found.

King Edward IV summons Colum Murtagh in the hope that he can located the relic and Physician Kathryn Swinbrooke is also called top assess the death. The pair of them soon find themselves embroiled in a dangerous situation. More killing take place. A corpse is dragged from the river and another murder takes place in the city. It would seem that enemies of Edward IV are gathering and anyone who gets in their way is going to end up dead . . .

HASH(0xaa369434) out of 5 stars A must read for history buffs 21 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read all books written by C.L. Grace, P.C. Doherty & Michael Clines, who I understand to be the same author. All of the stories are richly described, excitingly motivational, and brings life in England in that to life. I love these books. I would love to meet the author.
HASH(0xa1e6b9fc) out of 5 stars Main characters are like eminently likeable 5 July 2015
By Christine Gaworecki Monahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Part of the Kathryn Swinbrooke seriews by C.L. Grace aka P.C. Doherty, a renowned English medievalist. Main characters are like eminently likeable...many references to Chaucer since the action is set in Canterbury. Steeped in medieval English history and the periodof the Wars of the Roses and the fight for the English Crown between the Houses of York and Lancaster. Planning to read the entire series and then his many other books --with Sister Fidelma as the title character.
