It is midsummer 1195. An impoverished man claims to have discovered Merlin’s tomb and builds a hostel for pilgrims while spreading the word that his find is a place of miracles. This blasphemous intrusion is deeply resented both by the community at Hawkenlye Abbey and the pagan people of the forest. Though the finger of blame points at both communities following the man’s murder, the perennial sleuths Josse d’Acquin and Abbess Helewise soon discover that other parties also had an interest in his death. His wife does not seem distressed at his passing, possibly because she is pregnant despite having not slept with her husband for nearly six months.

About the Author:

Alys Clare is the author of the Hawkenlye Mysteries series. She is a history enthusiast who has written many novels under a pseudonym.

Review:

They are actually rather good * Publishers Weekly on A DARK NIGHT HIDDEN * 'A rich and compelling mystery' * Tangled Web * engrossing * Kirkus Reviews * 'Proof that a writer of medieval crime fiction can deliver something fresh' * The Times * A worthy heir to Ellis Peters, though grittier, materialises * Poison in the Pen on FORTUNE LIKE THE MOON * This is no murder-by-numbers writer. What seems a fascinating subplot, about a forest poeople who adhere to the old pagan ways, gradually becomes central to the investigation. Clare draws utterly believable characters who have warmth and humanity . . . Don't let the fact that this is the sixth in a series put you off. But I bet, like me, you'll be ordering books one to five when you've finished. * Derby Evening Telegraph on A DARK NIGHT HIDDEN * Praise for the Hawkenlye Series * : *
