Description
This mystery in medieval England is &;suspenseful, historically accurate, and blessed with a wonderful cast of characters . . . An absolute delight&; (Charles de Lint, author of the Newford Series).   It is Christmastide, 1363, and two suspicious deaths in the infirmary of St. Mary&;s Abbey catch the attention of the powerful John Thoresby, Lord Chancellor of England and Archbishop of York. One victim is a pilgrim, while the second is Thoresby&;s ne&;er-do-well ward, both apparently poisoned by a physic supplied by Master Apothecary Nicholas Wilton.   In the wake of these deaths, the archbishop dispatches one-eyed spy Owen Archer to York to find the murderer. Under the guise of a disillusioned soldier keen to make a fresh start, Owen insinuates himself into Wilton&;s apothecary as an apprentice. But he finds Wilton bedridden, with the shop being run by his lovely, enigmatic wife, Lucie. As Owen unravels a tangled history of scandal and tragedy, he discovers at its center a desperate, forbidden love twisted over time into obsession. And the woman he has come to love is his prime suspect.   &;Essential for historical fans.&; &;Library Journal   &;[Robb] lives up to the standard set by master medievalist Ellis Peters.&; &;Booklist
