4.0 out of 5 stars One of Doherty's best series, 31 Dec. 2006
This review is from: The House of Shadows (Sorrowful Mysteries of Brother Athelstan) (Mass Market Paperback)
There are a number of authors creating sleuths who solve crimes in Mediaeval England and Paul Doherty is one of the best. Brother Athelston is a Dominican Friar and priest of St Erconwald's church in Southwark. He is also secretary to The London Coroner, Sir John Cranston. The book starts with a prologue in which a young courtesan is murdered then skips to twenty years later when the woman's twin daughter's are similarly dispatched. There are several other deaths and a complicated mystery for Athelson and Cranston to unravel. The action is set in the reign of Richard II, when his uncle and regent, John of Gaunt is the most powerful man in the country.
