Based on Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, I enjoyed this story much better. I can't say that I was ever a fan of that movie; maybe it was because in my mind Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly never seemed to mix well together nor did the plot, as written, ever sufficiently seize my imagination. Here, in Silken Threads Patricia Ryan has not only succeeded in the retelling but far surpassed it. If you're in the mood for a good mystery/suspense set in medieval times, this is it. Also, there is a followup tale featuring the heroine's brother, Hugh of Wexford, and that story is based on Hitchcock's Notorious. So now, I've diminished my TBR by one but added another in it's place.
