Priscilla Royal has done amazing research for this series of books. Several of them have "Author's Notes" giving a short summary of pertinent history as well as a bibliography to learn more. This book gives us a look at religious artifact fraud in 1271 as well as the effects of soldiers returning from the Crusades with physical as well as psychological wounds. Eleanor, prioress of Tyndal, Sister Anne, Brother Thomas, and Ralf, the Crowner (Coroner) manage to solve two murders, an attack on the Infirmarer, and sheep stealing, as well as reliquary fraud. Quite a busy autumn for the priory.
Not your Ellis Peters equivalent, no matter what the publisher thinks.
Certainly, not in the realm of a Gregory, Jeck, Doherty, or Peters at all. But, this may be a first novel; so second one might have a better though out plot, with more emphasis on emotive and actions done.
Kinda of a one kind of focus though, and not kindly done.
