Amazon Editorial Review: " 'In the crypt of the abbey church at Hallowdene, the monks were boiling their bishop ...' This novel begins with monks but this is not the world of Brother Cadfael. This is the world of medieval quest, of castles, journeys, chance encounters with beggars and spies, of violent killings, and sometimes of unimaginable cruelty. It also a world deeply enmeshed with the supernatural, in which the holy remnants of saints - the finger of St Thomas, the tooth of St Ursula - may be a matter of life and death. It is against this background - peopled with monks, witches, children, mountebanks, women good and evil, and knights Templar or otherwise - that Sir Richard Straccan's first adventure as bone-pedlar extraordinaire takes place. Central to it all is the kidnap of his beloved little daughter, Gilla, brought up by nuns since the death of his wife."
Our hero is a dealer in relics at a time when a splinter from the true cross, the jawbone of Lazarus, a thread from Mary's chemise and such like are valuable commodities! The finger of Doubting Thomas is so important to one of his clients that he apparently kidnaps Sir Richard Straccan's daughter Gilla to secure it - and she might prove even more useful in other ways ....
MissMarkey has requested hardback books for an event during a gathering of BookCrossers in Colchester in September so I'm reserving this for her!
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Over a million people around the world give their books a unique BookCrossing IDentity number (BCID) before sending them out to find new readers. Since the start of the scheme in April 2001 well over 9 million such books have been put into circulation. This is one of them!
Our hope is that we can track the progress of our books once they've left our hands - and that's possible if finders like you visit the website, key in the BCID and leave a comment, however long or short. It's fun, it doesn't cost anything and you can remain anonymous if you wish. You don't have to join but if you do you'll be able to number and track your own books!
