Publisher's Summary

At the May Day dancing at Glasgow Cross, Gil Cunningham sees not only the woman who is going to be murdered, but her murderer as well. Gil is a recently qualified lawyer whose family still expect him to enter the priesthood. When he finds the body of a young woman in the new building at Glasgow Cathedral he is asked to investigate, and identifies the corpse as the runaway wife of cruel, unpleasant nobleman John Semphill. With the help of Maistre Pierre, the French master-mason, Gil must ask questions and seek a murderer in the heart of the city.

    "I really enjoyed this book!"

    Thanks to those who recommended this book to those who enjoyed the Brother Cadfael books. They were right. I loved this book from beginning to end, and Andrew Watson did a really great job. I will be following the entire series.

    Story
    "An unusual 'detective' story set in medieval times"
    Where does The Harper's Quine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an easy listen, the story flows well, the characters are built up so that you feel you know them, and the backgrounds are described well, you can put yourself in the times that the story is set


    What other book might you compare The Harper's Quine to, and why?

    I have not read a book like this previously


    What does Andrew Watson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I love the varying accents, he brings warmth to the characters


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

    Not really, the unfolding of the mystery and the story was at a pace I was happy with


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy a mystery and wanted to try something different, I enjoyed this, it was fascinating to glimpse some of the ways people lived in that time, and I will certainly be reading more from this author
