9780099429760: The Apothecary Rose (A Medieval Mystery)

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.

About the Author:

Candace Robb has read and researched medieval history for many years, having studied for a Ph.D in Medieval and Anglo-Saxon Literature. She is the author of nine Owen Archer novels and three Margaret Kerr Mysteries.

From AudioFile:

The easiest way to characterize these mystery stories set in medieval England is to note their similarity in content and tone to Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael series. For audiobook listeners, the resemblance is heightened by the fact that Stephen Thorne has recorded several of the Cadfael novels. Thorne is a seasoned professional, secure in his craft and an effortless pleasure to listen to. His reading has complete conviction, yet it never loses touch with the fact that this is entertainment, not high art. But the recording is very good stuff of its kind: an amiable companion to the commuter or jogger. J.N. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
