Not a stand-alone story and I didn't read the previous books. Too many characters and back story to keep track.

Much as I like the Owen Archer series, this was a poor start to the new series. For me its main fault was being very boring. I found all the characters unsympathetic and their actions unrealistic. The convoluted plot never did seem to get anywhere. Disappointing all round.

My favorite of the series so far, and all the books are great!

A unique take on a medieval murder mystery. Plenty of intrigue and suspicion, but the plot focuses on the why rather than the who, which is never really in doubt.

The writing style is good, solid, and the switches in character keep the story flowing. Due to the character shifts however, there are fewer mysteries, as the suspicious characters clear themselves through their own thoughts.

There is a particular character that stands out as very intriguing/well written, as he is disliked and distrusted by almost all but the lead character. This was another unique device that I enjoyed. His presence did speed the plot along, but I felt his ending was a bit abrupt.

Would recommend as worth a read, but not up to the standards of some other authors I have read in this genre.
