Mel Starr is the author of Unhallowed Ground - the fourth book in the Hugh de Singleton, surgeon, series. I had not read any of this series until this one. I was pleasantly surprised - this is a mystery that will keep you guessing - at one point I really thought I had it figured out - I was ALL WRONG! (And yes, I do love that!!) These books are definitely stand-alones - but now that I've read one - I will be on the hunt to find more - Starr is an author that wraps you right up in the time period and culture with his wit and dry humor, there is never a dull moment to be sure! Although it is not super fast-paced as some mysteries are, it is a read that still draws you in and keeps you focused. It is set in the medieval time period so the history is rich and the story is strong! Come along with Master Hugh, a 14th century English surgeon, as he unravels the murder set in Bampton - and be surprised at the ending!!
*I was sent a copy of the book, by the publisher, for review purposes.
