The book is the 4th in a series however I think it would work just as well as a standalone book so don't be put off if you haven't read the rest.
There are a couple of things that made this novel above average reading for me. The characters are mostly well sketched and accessible. While the protagonist is not Mensa-smart, he is logical, fair-minded and a credible everyman kind of guy. This storyline sends him into one sleuthing blind alley after another, and after each dead end, he doggedly and convincingly reassesses and moves on.
The second element that I liked about this book--and others in the series--is the great amount of detail about daily life in medieval England that is included in the stories. Author Starr has done an enormous amount of research for this series and provides a helpful glossary at the beginning of the books. The overall result is to give palpable authenticity to the work.
A good read and recommended.
Each of the Hugh de Singleton series builds on the strengths of the previous work while introducing new elements that, hopefully, will be followed up in editions to come.
As another reviewer has mentioned I'd like to have read a little more of the Surgeon but that's a very minor point in an otherwise excellent book.
Now, if we can just have a new book every month, with no loss of quality, I'll be a very happy man.
(Just kidding, really looking forward to the next one.......Soon please.)
