Rest Not In Peace~Mel Starr~Book Review

by adustyframe ~ January 3rd, 2014

This is another great book in the The Chronicles of Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon series. I’ve been able to review a couple of these books and have really come to enjoy them.

Mel Starr does an excellent job of writing about the time period. The first couple books in this series stretched my brain. I had to keep looking up words in the glossary so I would know what he was talking about! I feel like I may finally have the hang of it now because this book has been much easier for me to read.

The book opens with a murder and a mystery that Hugh has to solve. I jumped right in and enjoyed this book thoroughly!

If you’re looking for a book that’s not your average Christian fiction, you need to check out this series! It’s a good read and you’ll learn some history too!

About the book:

Another slice of medieval skullduggery from the surgeon-turned-sleuth.

Master Hugh, surgeon and bailiff, is asked to provide a sleeping potion for Sir Henry Burley, a friend and guest of Lord Gilbert at Bampton Castle. Sir Henry—with his current wife, a daughter by a first wife, two knights, two squires, and assorted servants—has outstayed his welcome at Bampton.

The next morning, Sir Henry is found dead, eyes open, in his bed. Master Hugh, despite shrill accusations from the grieving widow, is asked by Lord Gilbert to determine the cause of death . . . which had nothing to do with the potion.

The sixth tale following Hugh de Singleton, Rest Not in Peace is sure to find its place among fans of detective and medieval historical fiction.
