The Unquiet Bones
Full Product Description
Hugh of Singleton is the fourth son of a minor knight. He has been trained as a clerk - an education that often preludes to taking holy orders. Despite an active faith, Hugh does not feel a definite calling from God and instead decides to train as a surgeon in Paris. He then sets up a practice in Oxford, where the thrilling events will unfold...
The plot takes a mysterious twist when Hugh of Singleton is requested by a local Lord to find a young woman's murderer. The young woman was found in a castle cess pit and had been identified as the impetuous missing daughter of a local blacksmith. We find out that she had publically provoked a young man who is subsequently arrested and sentenced at the Oxford assizes.
At once, a mysterious crime thriller unfolds, with amusing medieval wit, heart-pounding adventure, romantic distractions and an underlying theme of Christian compassion...
The Unquiet Bones by Melvin R. Starr was published by Lion Hudson in September 2008 and is our 6762nd best seller. The ISBN for The Unquiet Bones is 9781854248855.

The Unquiet BonesMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Having read the Second Chronicle in this series I was delighted to receive this First Chronicle and it did not take me long to have read this too! Set in the fourteenth century, Hugh is a young man starting on his career as a surgeon and trying to attract customers to his room in an Inn in Oxford. Fortunately for him an accident occurs below his window and he is able to help the injured man who turns out to be Lord Gilbert Talbot, Lord of the castles of Bampton, and of Goodrich. As a result, Hugh moves into Bampton to serve this Lord and his people as their Surgeon. Very soon Lord Gilbert asks him to examine some human bones found in the castle cess-pit. This leads to a search for the identity of the dead girl and to the subsequent finding of more bodies and their murderers.
A murder story with historical interest which gives an insight into the lives of the people of this time.
