9780099278306: The Cross Legged Knight

England 1371: a solemn convoy wends its way into York. William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, is bringing home the remains of Sir Ranulf Pagnell, patriarch of a powerful local family, who has died in France. But the family hold the bishop responsible for Sir Ranulf's death, and ill feeling surrounds his arrival. An accident in the grounds of York Minster nearly kills the bishop. Then, only a few days after, his townhouse is found ablaze. When the body of a young woman is discovered in the undercroft of the house, scandal threatens to destroy Wykeham. The Archbishop of York, John Thoresby, asks Owen Archer for his help. The one-eyed spy is troubled. Was the fire an accident or arson? Was the woman trapped or the fire started to conceal a corpse? Stationing guards in front of the smouldering remains, he starts to ask questions. When it appears the dead woman was a midwife known to many of the city's women, including Lucie, Owen's wife, his quest becomes personal.

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 Booklist:

Owen Archer returns to solve another medieval mystery grounded in the intrigue spawned by the bitter rivalry among King Edward III's sons. When William of Wykehani, bishop of Winchester and the former lord chancellor of England, travels to York bearing the heart of a local knight slain by the French, he fears his life is in grave danger. Accused by the knight's family of skimming the ransom they sent to free Sir Ranulf Pagnell, he barely escapes with his life when a piece of building material falls directly in his path. Assigned by Archbishop Thoresby to keep Wykeham safe, Owen is baffled when Wykeham's residence is engulfed in flames. With the help of his wife, Lucie, a gifted apothecary, he investigates the murder of an unknown woman unearthed in the ashes. Once again, Robb provides the reader with an evocative and suspenseful whodunit thoroughly bolstered by a wealth of authentic historical detail. Margaret Flanagan
