The Fourth Crow: Gil Cunningham Mysteries | [Pat McIntosh]

The Fourth Crow: Gil Cunningham Mysteries

Tied to St Mungo's Cross by the cathedral to be cured of her madness overnight by the saint, the young woman is found in the morning beaten and strangled, still tied to the cross. But is she who she seems to be? And who would flout the saint's protection like this? Gil Cunningham must trace the dead woman and find her enemies, track down the thieves and murderers and identify the watchers in the shadows, particularly the elusive fourth person who holds the secret of what happened that night. Questioning cathedral staff and apprentice boys, pilgrims and tradesmen, he uncovers only more puzzles.

    "another good story."
    What made the experience of listening to The Fourth Crow the most enjoyable?

    the main characters growing in experience as time passes. the standard of writing, plot and historical information.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    there are two, alys and her father. alys because she is strong, her opinion is valued by gil and she helps him with solving the crimes.piere mason. liked him from the beginning of the beginning of the series and miss him when he is not in the story.


    What about Andrew Watson’s performance did you like?

    his continued good performance of the book and can pronounce all the Scottish words which I couldn't do if reading the print book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no because I wanted to mull over what I had just heard and see if I could figure out who did the murders..


    Any additional comments?

    I prefer the shorter length books because they are more tightly written making them fast paced and still manage to get in all the detail that is required.
