あらすじ・解説

A further episode in the Unquiet Bones series, following the life and fortunes of Hugh de Singleton, surgeon in medieval Bampton, Oxfordshire

Alan, the beadle of the manor of Bampton, had gone out at dusk to seek those who might violate curfew. When, the following morning, he had not returned home, his young wife Matilda had sought out Master Hugh de Singleton, surgeon and bailiff of the manor. Two days later Alan’s corpse was discovered in the hedge, at the side of the track to St. Andrew’s Chapel. His throat had been torn out - his head was half severed from his body - and his face, hands, and forearms were lacerated with deep scratches.

Master Hugh, meeting Hubert the coroner at the scene, listened carefully to the coroner’s surmise that a wolf had caused the great wound. And yet, if so, why was there no blood?

Wonderful series

Really wonderful books. No foul language or sex, etc. Historically accurate and interesting. I really like Susanna Gregory’s Bartholomew, but these are better.

Unchallenging but entertaining

This is the second in this series. So far they’re fairly straightforward fun and that’s what I want from a book.
This one is based on murder, poaching and the rather hapless main character falling in love for the 20th time in 2 books.

CHARMING

I love the way the author uses the first person (without the "I said he said") to develop his characters and spin the yarn..
This works no doubt with the assistance of the narrator and his sublime voice characterisation.

This is nearly "Vicar of Dibley" standard in its ability to include the reader in village life in a more feudal, rustic and "know one's place" time. Genteel and courteous with gentle and very limited romance ( a biggy for me).

The medical operations fascinating and the period research of medieval times very welcome.

Never swashbuckling but always interesting.
