review 1: I have decided not to read additional books in this series as the writing is not appealing to me for a few reasons. I wanted to like these books due to era, place and potential drama, but cannot invest more time hoping the writing will improve as I go along. The sentences are gen...

review 1: The Unquiet Bones is an excellent, quick read. If you are fond of historical fiction that tells a good story, without the author getting bogged down in unnecessary description that doesn't move with the narrative, then this is a book for you. Details and description of 14th centu...

review 1: I am so loving this series! Mel Starr is very authentic in his descriptions from clothing to food to Bampton where his hero Hugh de Singleton lives with his wife Kate, and daughter Bessie. At first the story can feel a bit "top-heavy" as far as religion goes, but Hugh echoes the ...

review 1: The third book in the Hugh de Singleton series by Melvin R Starr is, thus far, my favourite. Commencing from where Book Two, A Corpse at St Andrew’s Chapel leaves off, it focuses on Hugh’s hunt for his former master, John Wyclif of Oxford’s missing books. Thrown into life in medi...

review 1: Another in Starr's medieval series set in 14th century England, and it's been a awhile since I read the others. Hugh de Singleton is back and he's a little off his form (in my humble opinion). Seems like he makes a few more mistakes now that he's married and has a child. Guess th...

review 1: This well-told mystery is perhaps more slowly paced than a modern thriller, but all of life moved more slowly in the 14th century and the sense of time and place are a major part of the attraction of this series. Surgeon and bailiff Hugh de Singleton follows Henry de Mondeville i...

review 1: Slecht vertaald of slecht geschreven? Ik ben niet kapot van dit boek hoewel ik toch graag over de middeleeuwen lees. Misschien omdat de research er te dik bovenop lag? Omdat met grote regelmaat nogal "uitleggerig" geschreven werd? Omdat dingen die al duidelijk waren voor de zeker...

review 1: A colleague of mine recently visited St. Augustine, so I when this book came across my desk, I had to take a few hours and read it! It is a very quick read; great for a rainy summer day and the author gives a fine description of the sites of America's oldest city. I always enjoy ...

review 1: This was the first book I've read in the series and I enjoyed it, but wondered why the author seemed to include spoilers about what happened in the first two books. I would have looked for those too but now know "whodunnit." Oh well. I will definitely look for future books in the...
