November, 1302 and Sir Hugh Corbett, Keeper of the Secret Seal and a spy for Edward I together with his servant Ranulf, ex bully boy and occasional thief are sent to a manor in the frozen wastes of Norfolk. A cold and merciless wind springs up sweeping the land and sending a chill through the villagers of the hamlets along the coast. It is called the Dark Angel because of the effect it has, but it is as nothing compared to the ice in the human heart.
A headless corpse is found on the beach. At the same time a young woman is found hanging from the gallows. Corbett is soon embroiled in these gruesome deaths and also into the death of an old nun. Did she slip or was a human hand involved in her fall on to the rocks. The Lord of the Manor has his won secrets and the local villagers do not seem to take too kindly to the presence of outsiders.
The only thing i can really ever find fault with is the fact that Doherty does have a tendency to let modern ways of speaking seep into his prose. I know that we have no proof that these people didnt NOT speak like that, but to my ear it sounds a bit out of place.
Nonetheless, this is definitely one of his best mysteries so far, and i highly reccomend it to all lover of historical fiction.
Another great story line flows well. As well as the fiction side there is a History thead that runs through the story.
