Kate Ellis writes well, with even story pacing building to a final solution. Joe Plantagenet is characterised with human frailties sufficient to make..Show More » him a believeable policeman. All in all a most enjoyable tale.
I have read many Kate Ellis books and find them all a great read. I got this as an audiobook with Gordon Griffin reading. I really enjoyed this story ..Show More »and would recommend it. This is set in the historical city of Eborby. It starts with a young girl leaving a public house alone fearing being followed. She stops in an alleyway near cathedral ruins and sees a murdered woman plus a nun looking ghost like. There is a high fog in the city giving everything a ghost like supernatural feel. There is also a clairvoyant messing with the minds of the local bereaved. Joe is an interesting character and he helps to solve the mystery eventually. I would say that Kate Ellis chooses Gordon Griffin to read her books. I personally cannot see why. The reading is dire and totally took from my enjoyment of the story. I hope a different narrator will be chosen in the future.
