Rest Not in Peace by Mel Starr Book Review









Rest Not in Peace
The Chronicles of Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon #6
By Mel Starr


 

About the book: 

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.

My review;

   This is a really good addition to the Chronicles of Hugh de Singleton Surgeon series. Sir Henry Burley who is a guest at Brampton Castle owned by Lord Gilbert, has asked Master Hugh, who is a  surgeon for a drink to help him sleep. The problem is that when he went o bed Sir Henry was alive and well even after a night of dancing, music and more. No one can explain why he is found dead by his valet the next day.
   Lord Gilbert asks Master Hugh to find out how and why he was killed. The biggest problem is that Sir Henry's widow is full of accusations. The book is filled with twists and turns and very fast moving. I really enjoyed it. I am going to read the next in this series the seventh called The Abbot's Agreement as soon as it is released. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book by Kregel Publications for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
