I've followed this crowd since the beginning and too often I find myself laughing out loud as if I'm party to some of the conversations and ridiculous quotes typically found from these beloved characters.

This book is the best yet and without giving any spoilers, authority is challenged to its roots.... And after you get through all that... There is a Cliffhanger. Hurry up August for the next episode!

Please can you make this series into a TV series... It would be dramatic, hilarious and would be loved by a generation

As usual there is a long string of murders; not all are inter-related but you can't be sure which is which. There are a wealth of suitable candidates for murderer; the final 'exposed' murderer was a complete surprise - I certainly had no notion of who it was

Matt and Michael are back in Susanna Gregory’s twenty-second mystery. “It is a good time for tomb-makers” as a nefarious crowd of 14th century characters wend their way into Cambridge to disrupt both the University and the town, to the degree that Sheriff Tulyet happily coerces Michael with: “’The University and the town working together to thwart criminals. Are you sure you would not rather be a chancellor than a bishop, Brother? Cambridge needs you.’”
The Prologue opens in a manner that is slightly different from Gregory’s norm: yes, someone dies – in this case Sir John Dallingridge – but we trot alongside the impending corpse who realises he is being slowly poisoned and is trying to deduce who has done the deed in order to ensure his legacy isn’t bequeathed to them. By his deathbed side is Sir John Moleyns, the latter’s wife, Egidia, and lawyer, Inge along with his medicus Barber Cook and some family members. As he dies, there is also a troubling assessment of those who might create his splendid tomb.
Suffice it to say, a few months later this lot have pitched up in Cambridge. Sir Moleyns is there as part of a ‘prison move’ having been found guilty of various upper class crimes against the medieval peasantry of England. Trouble is, he gets off to a bad start:
“’Tulyet will be sorry he offended me,’ he said softly. ‘And so will his town.’”
It is not a spoiler to reveal the opening scene is one that brings about the death of Chancellor Tynkell. He engages in a satanic struggle above St Mary’s Church (reminiscent of a scene from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”) during a ferocious storm that it witnessed by everyone before being expertly dispatched. No murderer is found and everyone thinks ‘Satan’ flew away towards Barnwell Fields.

As always with Susanna Gregory this is an excellant read. So many twists and turns and full of 'red herrings' this is what make all her crime thrillers so compelling. In all 22 books have never sussed the full story till the end.

A welcome return of Michael and Matthew trying to work their way through yet more intrigues and machinations in Cambridge. Some regular 'faces' and a few new ones mixed in for good measure. Once started, I couldn't put it down. I love these books. Roll on no. 23!!
