Publisher's Summary

Oxford, late summer, 1353. On hearing that his cousin is short-handed for the harvest, Nicholas Elyot takes a group of friends back to the family farm to help. When a deer hunt in Wychwood ends in tragedy, suspicion is directed toward the huntsman, a boyhood friend of Nicholas. But the victim has made many other enemies, any one of whom could have shot the fatal arrow. Can Nicholas uncover the real killer before it is too late?

    "Excellent Medieval Mystery"

    I enjoyed C.J. Sansom’s mystery series featuring Matthew Shardlake and was sad when I finished the last book. Now I’ve discovered Ann Swinfen and am enjoying her series even more.
    The story line is compelling: a bookseller becomes involved in a murder investigation in England during the 1300’s. The characters are not only believable but very likable.
    The pace is good with a good amount of action but not too much. The ending was excellent and made sense though it did surprise me, which is perfect in a mystery tale.
    The narrator did a fine job and didn’t get in the way of the story.

    Story
    "Keep reading, it gets better after a while."

    This begins very, very slowly. A lot of time is spent getting organized and traveling to the farm. I think the murder doesn't occur until halfway through the book. It doesn't help that the narrator speaks somewhat slowly, as if every sentence is important. I don't remember noting that in the previous book. The reader knows who's the killer before the hero does. But I enjoyed the descriptions of country life at the time, and learning something of the character's youthful history. And the scene at the very end was a surprise.

    "Great story and narration!"

    I was so pleased to see that the third story in the series was now available on audible.com. Philip Battley is one of my favorite narrators. He makes the characters and story come to life. I'll be eagerly waiting for the next book in the Oxford Medieval Mysteries.
