I picked this up on a free books shelf at a friend's house and after finishing it, I ran out and got all of the Owen Archer books.

This book is entertaining for the suspenseful plot, natch, but also engrossing for the great characters and vivid setting. Robb does an amazing job of bringing medieval England to life.
Affascinante a tratti. Peccato per alcune particine un po' noiose... Ma Archer non potrebbe diventare un pelino più intuitivo? ah, gli uomini! :P
This is the second book in a mystery series based in the 12 c. in York and is about a Welsh former-archer named Owen who has lost his eye and turned to other means of earning a living including investigating and solving crimes while serving an apprenticeship as an apothecary.
I really do like this medieval historical mystery series...likable characters, good history flavor. Definitely going for the next book in the series!
Nice medieval mystery with enough political complexity to keep it interesting and a slightly flawed hero worth another look in the other books in the series.
