Summary

Salisbury 1226.

When a child of village outcasts disappears from Salisbury, the odious new sheriff doesn’t seem to care. Ela Longespée is determined to help the girl’s desperate parents and her investigation leads her into the thick of a human-trafficking ring in London. There, she vows to find the lost child, arrest the perpetrators, and convince the king to make her high sheriff of Wiltshire.

The Ela of Salisbury Medieval Mystery series

This series features a real historical figure - the formidable Ela Longespée. The young countess of Salisbury was chosen to marry King Henry II’s illegitimate son William. After her husband’s untimely death, Ela served as high sheriff of Wiltshire, castellan of Salisbury Castle, and ultimately founder and abbess of Lacock Abbey.

They just keep getting better!

It was easy to get caught up in the mystery, pathos, and adventure of this story. Plus, it's always great to see the guilty get their comeuppance. I'm looking forward to the next book. By the way, I listen to a lot of audiobooks and I think this performance is terrific.
