New series and the first time I have read this author. It is set in 1005 in England. A historical novel with some mystery. It covers how women were perceived and treated especially where a marriage is involved.
Francis Black and Tom Tod are the protests and both have noncompliant marriages. About 1/2 through the book there is a major shift in the story and it becomes a cold case mystery. The story has elements of the Nora and Charles’ books.
Francis and Tom at an of Robert Barnaby Society conference when Linda Dexter goes missing and is later her body found smashed on a railroad track. Francis and Tom decided to look into Linda’s papers on Robert Barnaby. They discover that Linda was a principle in a murder about twenty years earlier. Does her death date back to the previous murder or is the cause of new information about the “Magic Chair” is the cause? I recommend this book.
