Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need m-o-r-e maple leaves to rate this one! Glastonbury Abbey has been put to the torch! And this is only the beginning. I really resented not being to read this one through in one sitting, it wouldn't have mattered if it took 10 hours! Drat those mundane things like "work" & "meals"! The 3 books in this series (so far...) surpass even the Cadfael series. I can hardly wait for the 4th one. The Mistress of the Art of Death series? Definitely a MUST READ... you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Sequel 3rd novel in the series “A Mistress in the Art of Death” This historical based mystery is an exciting sequel. Anyone who is a fan of Adelia Aguilar and her forensic skills will not be disappointed. In 1176, a fire caused damage to Glastonbury Abbey and during the subsequent clean up an ancient box was found with the remains of two people. As in the past, King Henry 11 summoned Adelia to determine without a doubt the skeletons uncovered where those of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Adelia and her forensic team embark on a mission to reveal their true identities. The author has given us a tale of crime, forensics details and romance mixed with an ingenious blend of medieval history during the rule of King Henry11.This clever story progresses with snappy dialogue at a fast-pace making it very hard to put down. A fascinating cast of strong characters provide growth to tantalize our imagination and pique our interest. New facets are revealed in the relationship between Adelia and St-Alban while the adventure runs a gamut of difficulties. Judging by the ending of this novel, I suspect Henry will ask Adelia to use her expertise and solve more of the period’s mysteries

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! Adelia Aguliar is now my favourite female sleuth. Ms Franklin's Mistress of the Art Of Death books are getting better and better and I can't wait for the next one.
