    Oxford University, 1271: for the first time in the university's history a college is to be purpose-built. As old buildings are pulled down, a skeleton is revealed. The skull is missing - it is clear the man has been murdered. Regent Master William Falconer deduces that the body was hidden 20 years ago.

    "Also Reported Incomplete Book"
    Overall

    Six or so weeks ago I also complained to Audible that I had wasted a credit on this book - the credit was refunded and the complaint was referred within to the Audio Department. Still nothing has been done - and the incomplete book remains available for purchase - Unbelievable!!!!
    This is otherwise a great book!

    Overall

    What a read! Hard to believe this is a debut novel - it is a sophisticated work from a very clever intellect!
    Well worth the effort.

    The sweltering summer of 1911. Half the country is on strike; the other half seems to be in flames. And in his most perplexing case to date, railway detective Jim Stringer has 48 hours to solve a murder not yet committed. One Friday evening, a special train rolls into York station. It carries a young aristocrat lately found guilty of murdering his father. Briefly entrusted into Jim's custody, he warns of yet another murder about to happen...Jim and his strong-willed wife take the train along the near-deserted branch line.

    Overall

    One of my family's traditions is adherence to an old saying: "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." In keeping with my family's tradition I have nothing to say about this listen.

    Story

    In the 12th-century Benedictine monastery of Shrewsbury, Brother Cadfael has settled down to a quiet life in charge of the herbarium after an adventurous, and far from monastic, youth. But when his prior determines to acquire the bones of a saint from a remote Welsh village, Cadfael's worldly experience becomes vitally important. It is fortunate indeed that his skills as a herbalist are matched by his prowess as a detective, since the obstacles to the expedition include murder.

    Erin says: "Classic Mystery"
    "Difficult to Beat!"
    Overall

    This is a first class murder/mystery - but the most appealing aspect of this work is the author's ability to immerse the reader in the story itself - the characters, the time period and the setting. Character development is enthralling and the subtle adduction of fact keeps the story moving, and above all else, human. The audio isn't perfect but Stephen Thorne more than makes up for that. Don't miss this one!
