Summary

The sixth medieval whodunnit to feature Owen Archer, one-eyed former soldier and occasional sleuth, opens as he accompanies a pilgrimage to Wales, country of his birth. His task is to recruit archers to send to France, but, with his companion Geoffrey Chaucer, he must also investigate the threat of an uprising against the English led by a charismatic Welshman. As he arrives, a young man is rescued, injured, from White sands Beach outside St. David's, by the poet Dafydd ap Gwylim, and given refuge. And at the gateway to the city the body of a man is found, stabbed to death. Owen wants only to resolve his business and return to York. But the ramifications of the murder upset his plans and he must become involved…

Good yarn pleasantly narrated

I just wish the Welsh names could have been correctly pronounced otherwise I could listen to Stephen Thorne all day.

A Gift of Sanctuary

For me, Stephen Thorne is the voice of Candace Robb's Owen Archer and I thoroughly enjoyed listening.

Long winded !

Very good reader... probably the only reason I persevered with this story. It was long and convoluted and never got going. I got so bored but was determined to finish as I loved Apothecary Rose, which was why I went for this in the first place!
