it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction, forensic
Read from June 19 to 24, 2010

I loved it.

Yes, there were some anachronisms and Franklin admitted as much in her closing author's note. Sometimes it was a bit like reading CSI: Plantagenet but I could forgive all this for what was a cracking good forensic thriller with good characterisations and local colour in the setting.

I already own the next two in the series so was quite committed to it on word of mouth alone. Glad not to be disappointed.
