The Twice-Hanged Man: A Medieval Mystery #15

“Edward I’s England is again at war with Wales in Royal’s excellent 15th whodunit set in 13th-century Britain. Royal seamlessly integrates historical events into what stands as one her best puzzles, the most Agatha Christie–like in terms of motive.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The 15th adventure for Royal’s clever, conflicted prioress continues her mastery of the medieval, provides a mystery that’s twisty but not impenetrable, and advances the ongoing story of the problematic sexual relationships of the continuing cast.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Prioress Eleanor returns in another of Royal’s historically detailed and expertly executed medieval whodunits. This fifteenth entry featuring Eleanor and Brother Thomas once again features a main mystery as well as intriguing subplots involving the series’ recurring characters.”
