This mystery in medieval England is suspenseful, historically accurate, and blessed with a wonderful cast of characters.

It is the year of our Lord 1363. And in the cathedral city of York people are dying in mysterious circumstances. But there seems to be a common thread - the herbal remedies dispensed by Nicholas Wilton, Master Apothecary. The first victim is an anonymous pilgrim. But when a highborn nobleman dies after taking the same potion the authorities decide to act. Dispatched to York, in disguise, to unravel the mystery, Owen Archer, former Captain of Archers, apprentices himself to the Apothecary. But it is from Wilton's beautiful wife Lucie that he must learn the arcane secrets of the trade. Slowly but surely Owen begins to uncover the truth. And when the deaths continue he realises to his horror he must count Lucie among the suspects.

I now have read all the books in this series that are available from Amazon. Book 8 is unavailable and I can't figure out why. I believe a person will enjoy the series if read in order but the books can stand alone. The hero in the series is a bumbling fellow, though hale and hearty and strong and ... well... sheriff-like. Two threads converge and diverge throughout this book and all the others in the series so that the mystery parts and the apothecary parts were both fascinating to me, almost two series for the price of one. But they don't get in the way of one another at all. Most of the characters, good, bad, hopeless, are well drawn. I cannot think of anything that proved to be a waste of my time. Are the books classics, to be treasured for all time? No, probably not, but I read 'em all, didn't I? So they were the perfect sort of mystery for those of use who like the genre and a stuck at home for freaking ever. Are they as good as the Cadfael books? In my opinion, no, but they make for an entertaining, fast read that will hold the attention, and satisfy readers who are looking for a historical mystery. There is plenty of attention to the people of the times, their habits and personalities, and their curious sense of loyalty to their "betters", and defense against their "lessors". Are they torn-bodice tales? Nope, but there is a lot of action as the hero has, um, needs. He's not Detective Carella from the 87th Precinct, but i hope you will give one a try.

I brought this book along on a trip, and the best I can say is that it was easy to fall asleep to.
The writing style mixes out-of-place Americanisms with attempts at archaic English. The story doesn't work well as a mystery, because the action is way too slow, and you already know the villain's identity halfway through. It doesn't work as a novel, because the characters are shallowly written--almost puppets. You don't really care about them. The reader knows that a love affair is coming, but it comes way too late, and lacks the heat and passion that would have given it interest.
Contrast this with Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael series, set about 100 years earlier. There, you don't need an author's note--politics and wars in the wider world, weaponry and technology, are part and parcel of each story. The action is fast-paced, the characters fully fleshed-out individuals. When you turn the last page of the last book, you feel as if you are saying goodbye to a friend.
I hope that this series improved with the succeeding books.

The Hangman's Daughter series (which I absolutely loved) got me interested in this genre. I'll admit, after getting to know the Kuisls from that series, I doubted another author could hold my attention
I hesitated to give the entire series a shot, and bought only the first book on sale. After all, spending $.99 wouldn't break the bank. I find it hard to depend on reviews because tastes in literature vary so widely. It is the writing and character development that makes the book.

What a pleasant surprise. This book was in a single word, FANTASTIC. The plot was brilliant, the characters so believable that they were recognisable from tone alone. I spent an entire night burried in the story, wanting to see the mystery solved but regretting getting towards the end. Make sure you set aside some time, or you'll find yourself very tired the next morning. Satisfied but tired. I bought the rest of the series immediately.

I do have one complaint, though. This is a ten book series and there is no Book Eight available. The only thing that makes this absence tolerated is that the books can be read 'stand alone'. But 's. Robb, where is Book Eight?

The best aspects of this book were its quality writing, its portrayal of daily life in medieval York, the exposition of the "rules" that applied to the different social strata of the period and the interwoven political and ecclesiastical intrigues that motivated the power brokers in the story. As a fan of historical mysteries, however, I found the mystery aspect of the book lacking. Rather than being a whodunit, the plot was a "whydunit" that took altogether too long to unfold. Further, I found many of the secondary characters far more interesting than the hero, Owen Archer. The latter impression will likely prevent me from reading any more of this series. Nonetheless, I doubt historical mystery fans will regret reading this book, and if your preference scale tips more toward history than mystery, I suspect you'll enjoy it more than I did.

You can draw comparisons between Ellis Peter's books and this one but I happen to think
the definitive writing and character development let this book stand on its own. Owen Archer
is a man who has lost his eye, his job and his sponsor which puts him in a very awkward
position until an offer comes from the Church to do some investigating into a possible
murder. Whle Archer is not too keen on this it is the only option at hand so he reluctantly
begins his sleuthing and wow does he have a lot to choose from! The people in this story
all have personalities and backgrounds from Bess the tavern keeper to Lucie who has to
try and maintain her status even tho she is a woman. This is no book to skim through as
there are plenty of plots to get through and people with their own agendas to take care. I
liked this book with one exception - Nicholas Wilton. I felt like he was a wimp who just
went with the flow and a rather ambiguous person.
