Format: Mass Market Paperback
Margaret Frazer has done her research well as she guides us through the medieval landscape of traveling Players, the ordeal of patronage and prejudice, murder and mayhem in village and cloister. The reader is there in 15th century England, cold, fearful, hungry, but soon warmed,and well fed through the kindness and Benedictine ethics of the Sisters. The 20th century does not intrude here except in the discovery that people are universally the same: good, silly, corrupt, flawed no matter what time frame in which they might have lived. Murder is murder, but here, with a lively twist. The incisive, wise Sister Frevisse carefully asserts her strength, protecting the players. Why? She collects the facts overcoming all impediments and finally, is amazed, herself, when the truth of the murders is revealed. Terrific read, excellent research into the period and in the realistic portrait she paints of wandering theatre troupes. A book with authentic historical information combined with a page turning mystery.Read it and you will be eager to consume the rest of her work too!

This is the first book by Margaret Frazer that I have read. I found she evoked the 15th Century effortlessly for me. I could feel the cold of winter and the constant coughing of the nuns irritated me as it does Dame Frevisse who is charged with finding out who is behind a series of senseless and calculated murders in and around the nunnery. Can she solve the mystery before the crowner Montfort blames the traveling troupe of players? Will an innocent pay?...
