Product description

Review

The 14th century is a fine backdrop for Clark's Abbess of Meaux series ...Clark's worldly nun has a degree of freedom other women of the period wouldn't have enjoyed and her arduous journey across the Alps is presented in convincing detail (Sunday Times)

'Really engrossing storyline ... a real joy to read... I didn't want this book to end and I will have no hesitation in including it in my top five best reads of 2009. May this author write many more novels of this high quality in the future' (Eurocrime)

'Clark's central character is certainly memorable, and the story woven around her in this, the second of the author's Abbess of Meaux mysteries, is well plotted and meticulously researched ... this unusual murder mystery is a fascinating read ... a great addition to the sleuthing fraternity!' (Press Association)

'Cleverly plotted, this is a gripping novel full of twists and turns, bright with colour and fascinating period detail that brings a turbulent period of history to life' (Choice Magazine)

'Every bit as absorbing as the first ... Clark is proving highly adept at bringing medieval history to life, and The Red Velvet Turnshoe adds considerably to her growing reputation' (Yorkshire Evening Post)

'Reader are taken on a perilous journey through Flanders and France over the Alps through St Bernard Pass onto Florence, all the time threatened by spies and killers determined to stop her' (Folkestone Herald & Dover Express)

'Clark's central character is certainly memorable ... well plotted and meticulously researched ... this highly unusual murder mystery is a fascinating read' (Dundee Courier & Advertiser)

'Hildegard is back! ... this is a well-written historical tale, with a depth of detail which allows the reader to immerse themselves in the fourteenth century ... the book skilfully weaves a complex plot with the rich period background and brings the whole story to life with vivid descriptions and a cast of roguish characters ... highly recommended' (Mystery Woman)

Priase for the first in the Abbess of Meaux series, Hangman Blind (---)

Clark capably draws out the turmoil of rebellion and fealty boiling under Richard II's insecure, juvenile reign, while giving Hildegard plenty of scope to poke her nose the violence engulfing the de Hutton dynasty (Financial Times)

Cassandra Clark's prose is flawless (Daily Telegraph)

'Hildegard is an engaging protagonist, sensible, kindly, resourceful and believable; she is also endearing susceptible to a pair of Saxon blue eyes (Ulf) and Norman grey ones (Hubert). Fans of historical crime will relish this' (Joanna Hines, Guardian)

A strong novel about how denying the past can destroy lives (Sunday Age)

'A promising new heroine' (Diplomat)

'The political background is intriguing and Hildegard is a strong and likeable heroine with a big future' (Huddersfield Daily Examiner)

'The quality of research in this novel is obviously of the highest order and one can only look forward to the next in the series.' (East Riding News)

'History leaps out of the pages in vibrant colours, danger is at every hand, mystery piles upon mystery and you willingly succumb to the enticement of Cassandra Clark's writing' (Northern Echo)

'Clark delivers a medieval whodunnit which is both delicate and dangerous, reeking of lust, treachery, greed and violence and which keeps the reader at least one step behind' (Northern Echo)

'Hangman Blind is a brilliant book which I thoroughly enjoyed - not just because it's set in 1382 with all the richness of that period, but because it's so well written' (BFK Books)

'A well written and engaging story' (Euro Crime (online))

'The strength of the book...is in the quality of the historical imagination and the attempt at integrating the political and social situation into the plot' (Reviewing the Evidence (online))

'Clark is one of the most sure-footed practitioners of this difficult genre.' (The Independant) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
