Steven Crossley embodies the ambiance of the medieval era in his first-person narration of this historical mystery. Lady Philippa Mullins, along with her maid, is found mysteriously missing from her coach, throwing surgeon and bailiff Sir Hugh de Singleton into another investigation in this audiobook set in fourteenth-century England. With a rather deliberate, plodding pace, Hugh traces the path of Lady Philippa to Oxford and the surrounding countryside, treating injuries and uncovering bodies along the way. He transports listeners back eight centuries to the days when the Church reigned supreme over all aspects of life, sometimes justly but at other times with corruption. Crossley's interpretation, with its matter-of-fact approach to graphic injuries and Hugh's determination to seek out justice, suits this audiobook's content effectively.
