Publisher's Summary

Lady Philippa, the wife of Sir Aymer, a knight of the realm, disappears while travelling from her husband’s manor to Bampton. She and her maid are traveling in an enclosed wagon, while her husband and his grooms and a squire are mounted.

When the party arrives at Bampton Castle neither the lady nor her maid are within the enclosed wagon: they have simply vanished. As the disappearance may have happened while the travelers were on Lord Gilbert’s lands, his surgeon and bailiff, Hugh de Singleton, is assigned to discover what has happened to the lady. Has she been taken? Her has she fled her husband?

A few days later her husband receives a ransom demand, and Hugh is named to deliver the money. Why him? The ransom is paid, but the lady is not returned. Can Hugh help find her, or is it already too late?

Excellent original storylines and narration

This, book 12, may be one of the best in the series. I particularly appreciate Hugh's application of his reading and understanding of Holy Writ to his final actions in the resolution of such a quandary.

Excellent

This is one of the best in the series and I was happy to find that Mel Starr is not running out of ideas. It was nice to have Steven Crossley back for this installment as well. Now I just have to decide if I wait for the next book's audio release or read it the old fashioned way.

One of the best in the series

I really enjoyed this story. It had a nice, leisurely pace, with enough action to hold my interest. I hope that Audible will soon have Mel Starr's two new books in this series available to audible listeners.
