A Trail of Ink
¥ 3,000 で購入
Some valuable books have been stolen from Master John Wyclif, the well-known scholar and Bible translator. He calls upon his friend and former pupil, Hugh de Singleton, to investigate. Hugh’s investigation leads him to Oxford where he again encounters Kate, the only woman who has tempted him to leave bachelor life behind, but Kate has another serious suitor. As Hugh’s pursuit of Kate becomes more successful, mysterious accidents begin to occur. Are these accidents tied to the missing books, or to his pursuit of Kate?
One of the stolen books turns up alongside the drowned body of a poor Oxford scholar. Another accident? Hugh certainly doesn’t think so, but it will take all of his skills to prove.

A bit tedious!
Who took the books?!! I enjoyed the first volume in this series. This one seemed very tedious and I felt like I had to make myself listen through to the end. Disappointed. Steven Crossley’s narration was wonderful as always!

Another excellent historical novel by Mel Starr.
This novel furthers Hugh's relationship with John Wycliffe. Set in medieval Oxford, England the vocabulary and descriptions of everyday life are at the same time: believable, educational, and intriguing. I am not an historian, but the rich details in this work lead me to believe that the author has cut no corners in his research. thank you Mel, for an excellent read (listen).

Marvelous, atmospheric medieval mystery
This is the third book in this wonderful series, this time with a bit of romance. I have high hopes for the next novels in the series when the wonderful Kate will contribute her wit and intelligence to solving the mysteries which the indefatigable Hugh de Singleton must solve as Bailiff of Lord Gilbert's domain in Bampton, a village on the outskirts of Oxford. A treasure of easy listening pleasure.
