I loved this series and had been waiting for the right time to read the last one. I was a bit disappointed. It could have been edited down a bit: there's a bit too much summarizing, a bit too much description (and I usually love Doherty's descriptions). I thought the solution to the mystery was pretty obvious. I do love Athelstan & Cranston, though, and Doherty really makes late 14th century London come to life. I hope there will be more entries in this series sometime (Will Athelstan remain at St. Erconwald's? Will Cranston ever finish his Treatise on the Governance of London?)
