This is a pretty good read and the story isn't bad but it's definitely not in the same class of historical fiction as C.J. Sansom, Umberto Eco, Robert Harris or Ken Follett. It turns into a pretty lurid bodice ripper towards the end, which is a pity, but I guess a lot of the ladies will enjoy it for that. Even so, it's a lot better than Ruth Downie, and the narration is excellent.
Addicted to Audible!
I agree with the other positive posts about this book. I also agree with the analogy to Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta. I thought that was a positive since I love her books! If you like Cornwell and want a different "twist" you will love this book.
if you love the Patrica Cromwell "Scarpetta" novels you will certainly enjoy this.
The first female forsenic pathologist, set in Englend during the reign of Edward II.
Birillant and suspensful.
living in los angeles I drive a lot, so audio books save me from a lot of frustration!
I had trouble caring about the story and the character to the point where I skipped many chapters and jumped to the end. There, I was quite surprised that the book had turned into a romance that reminded me of the Outlander series, which I couldn't get though either.
Only the second book ever from Audible that I could not get through. I found the story too drawn out and I found that the narrator, in putting on accents, became too difficult to understand. I really wanted to like it, but 9 hours was just enough!
