Although he was watching closely when the mummer was poisoned, it took Gil Cunningham several days and three more poisonings to work out how it was done.
Danny Gibson and Nanty Bothwell, rivals for the affections of Agnes Renfrew, the apothecary's pretty daughter, are also good friends.

"McIntosh does a solid job of blending plot and period detail." (Publishers Weekly)
"Will do for Glasgow in the 15th century what Ellis Peters and her Brother Cadfael did for Shrewsbury in the 12th." (Mystery Readers Journal)
This is a great mystery! The characterization is wonderful, the mystery is interesting and well-crafted, and Andrew Watson is a great reader. I have enjoyed all of the stories in this series so far (I'm listening to them in order).
The historical detail is fascinating. The series takes place in Glasgow, Scotland, during the 1490's, and Pat McIntosh brings it to vivid life. She shows how the religion, culture, and the level of scientific knowledge of this period effect how people think and behave.
The only problem that I have with the series is with a decision of the Audible production people. This series has author's notes in the original text format. The author's notes explain aspects of the stories that the readers might not be familiar with. Unfortunately, the audio format has had the author's notes left out. It would be nice if Audible could put the author's notes back in.
