A new series by the creator of the Owen Archer books. Kate Clifford lives in York trying to keep her household afloat after being left buried in her dead husband's debts. The last thing she needs is a murder threatening everything she has accomplished. The series takes place as England is on the brink of civil war and is rich with history. Intriguing characters drive a story awash in historical political machinations.

A Medieval mystery with the eventual wife to be of Owen Archer from the series of the same name. Good story with great historical details.
