About the Author:

A fan of historical fiction since childhood, Susan McDuffie spent such vast amounts of time reading stories set in the past that she wondered if she had mistakenly been born in the wrong century. As an adult her discovery that Clorox was not marketed prior to 1922 reconciled her to life in this era. Susan’s childhood interest in Scotland was fueled by family stories of the McDuffie clan’s ancestral lands on Colonsay and their traditional role as “Keeper of the Records” for the Lords of the Isles. On her first visit to Scotland she hitchhiked her way through the Hebrides, and her initial visit to Colonsay and the Oronsay Priory ruins planted the seeds for her medieval mysteries. Those seeds have grown into the Muirteach MacPhee mysteries, set in medieval Scotland during the Celtic Lordship of the Isles. The series includes A MASS FOR THE DEAD, THE FAERIE HILLS (2011 New Mexico Book Awards “Best Historical Novel”), THE STUDY OF MURDER (New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards Finalist 2014), and THE DEATH OF A FALCON. Susan frequently presents at workshops and conferences and regularly reviews historical fiction books for the Historical Novel Society’s “Historical Novels Review. Susan lives in New Mexico and shares her life with a Native American artist and four cosseted cats, and enjoys taking flamenco classes in her spare time. Susan loves to hear from readers and can be contacted via Facebook or through her website.

Review:

"THE STUDY OF MURDER is a worthy addition to Susan McDuffie's 14th century mystery series. Muirteach and Mariota may be in an alien world, but neither town nor gown can match their clever wits in solving crime. A treat for those of us eager for a fresh era, well-integrated history, and a host of interesting characters." Priscilla Royal, author of the Prioress Eleanor/Brother Thomas mysteries

"If you like your mysteries very well written, interspersed with history, and a cozy wit and charm, THE STUDY OF MURDER is a lesson you can't afford to miss!" WTF Are You Reading
