    In medieval England, four children have been murdered, and the townsfolk blame their Jewish neighbors. The doctor chosen to investigate is a woman, Adelia. As she examines the victims and retraces their last steps, she must conceal her true identity in order to avoid accusations of witchcraft. Along the way, she's assisted by Sir Rowley Picot, a man with a personal stake in the investigation. A former Crusader knight, Rowley may be a needed friend - or the fiend for whom they are searching.

    Overall

    There were some lovely images and the times the author shifted from the "story" to the surround made me feel grounded in the narrative. Several of the characters were complex enough to be real. As in life, sometimes first impressions changed. I could listen to the narrator indefinitely. It sounded to me as if as many people were reading it as there were characters. If you like mysteries and you can countenance descriptions of children being hurt, don't miss it.
