by Paul Doherty
Past crimes lead to new murder in the latest gripping Brother Athelstan mystery, set in 14th century London.
November, 1381. London has been rocked by a series of bizarre and brutal murders. The corpses of a number of prostitutes have been discovered, their throats slit, their bodies stripped; in each case, a blood-red wig has been placed on their heads. At the same time, a mysterious explosion rips through a royal war cog bound for Calais, killing all on board. Could there be a connection?
Summoned to assist in the investigations by Sir John Cranston, Brother Athelstan uncovers rumours that the mysterious Oriflamme is responsible. But who – or what – exactly is he … and why has he suddenly reappeared after almost twenty years?
Genre: Historical Crime & Mystery
“Outstanding … Doherty keeps the action brisk, the crimes baffling, and the deductions and solution fair”
Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“As always, Doherty displays exceptional narrative flair as he brings the often-squalid sights, sounds, and smells of medieval London to life in another artfully crafted and plotted historical mystery”
“Conjuring up medieval London in all its grime and glory, Doherty keeps readers guessing and the pages turning with yet another intricately plotted whodunit steeped in history”
