The national bestselling hit hailed by the New York Times as a 'vibrant medieval mystery...[it] outdoes the competition.'

In medieval Cambridge, England, Adelia, a female forensics expert, is summoned by King Henry II to investigate a series of gruesome murders that has wrongly implicated the Jewish population, yielding even more tragic results. As Adelia's investigation takes her behind the closed doors of the country's churches, the killer prepares to strike again.

    This book is wonderful! I got hooked on the suspense and mystery. The characters were compelling and I'm now waiting to receive the next two books in her series. Can't wait.

    A great Hero as a woman doctor in the middle ages. Interesting writing style.

    Clever, scary, compelling. A great listen if you're a lover of medieval mysteries, with a great female protagonist and a plot that keeps you guessing. There's something of an "ewww" factor, as the murderer is killing children in really awful ways. The author downplays that aspect of the story, but it's lurking nonetheless.

    SKILLED NARRATION CAN TAKE A GOOD STORY AND MAKE IT WONDERFUL. THE VOICE OF THE NARRATOR IS SO SMOOTH, HER TRANSITIONS FROM VOICE TO VOICE IS SEAMLESS. YOU'LL FIND YOUR SELF FORGETTING THAT IT'S JUST ONE PERSON READING THE TALE. AND WHAT A GREAT TALE IT IS. SUSPENSEFUL, FRIGHTENING AND JUST A TAD ROMANTIC. GREAT READ. I WOULD BUY THE HARD COPY JUST TO HAVE ON HAND.

    This was my first audio book and I loved it. The story was riveting and visual. The narrator was superb in her ability to capture different voices of characters, both male and female. I hope the author writes a sequel to this book.
