Product description

Review

Close attention will reward readers with well-researched historical information, from the minutiae of everyday living to the public events in the lives of the rich and powerful. Mystery buffs, however, are likely to reach the answer before Athelstan.
Kirkus Reviews on The Straw Men

"Will appeal to John Dickson Carr fans. With dozens of books to his credit, Doherty continues to impress."
Publishers Weekly on The Straw Men

"Doherty mires the grisly action as firmly in mystery as he does the multitiered narrative in the mud, muck, and mayhem of medieval London poised on the brink of the Peasants' Revolt."
Booklist on The Straw Men

About the Author
