Format: Hardcover
I've read many medieval murder mysteries, and I found this one in particular and all the Catherine LeVendeur novels especially compelling. The detail is so rich that you begin almost to smell the smells and hear the sounds of the middle ages. The protagonists are not just modern-day people plunked into a medieval setting--they think like medievals. And they transport the reader as effectively as any characters can to a very different time and place. Not only is this a must read, it's a must read again and again. Sharan Newman should quit her day job and write full time. Her research is meticulous and pays off in an amazing array of rich and compelling detail. Read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting mystery, Intriqueing history, and a challenging pilgrimage 21 April 2014
By Murph01 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novel is a great read: it tells a crucial tale of Catherine and Edgar's life and their attempt to establish a family; it also gives new depth and insight about Catherine's father, uncle, and cousin, Solomon. After a still birth and a number of miscarriages, Catherine becomes convinced that she and Edgar must make a pilgrimage to St. James' shrine in Spain. They join a group that consists of four aging knights, two Spanish dancers and singers, a rich widow seeking to fulfill her husband's pledge, and the abbot of Cluny and his entourage. The physical challenges of the pilgrimage are grueling on their own, but the trip takes on new terror when members of the troupe begin to die--in mysterious and sometimes horrifying ways. Despite Catherine and Edgar's deeply personal rationale for the trip, they soon become embroiled in the mystery as more and more people die. This is a satisfying mystery, and one to be enjoyed deeply.
5.0 out of 5 stars Truly inspired me to walk The Way 14 Jun. 2016
By sullivanlaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Newman's story-telling ability in this novel actually inspired us to walk the original Way of Saint James. Just as in the story, we flew into Paris, drove a meandering route to Vézelay, and began with hundreds of other pilgrims, to walk all the way to Santiago de Compestela. We even took a special trip to see the original grounds of the Paraclete!
1.0 out of 5 stars FOR ME, NOT BELIEVABLE 19 April 2014
By D. Kane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Enough said. Others may like this genre. It's not the Christian themes, or all the cliched piety, poverty, or affluence. Based on my own reading of history from the period, I do not find the book all that believable.
5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting! 7 April 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very enjoyable and interesting! I enjoy the series very much. This author does great research and provides information to the reader outside of the storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Love is Strong as Death; jealousy is cruel as the grave. 7 July 2000
By Edward Alexander Gerster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As fourth in the series of the Catherine LeVendeur mysteries, it is the least typical in setting and theme. The adventures along the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compestela in Spain from Catherine and Edgar's home in France are fascinating historically aside from the 'mystery' of the dying crusaders. The complexity of interpersonal relationships is stronger here than in the first three books, showing both the authors development, and the development of the characters. To fully understand the character's motivations, I would highly recommend reading the first three books in this series first (Death Comes as an Epiphany, The Devil's Door, and The Wandering Arm).
