Rest Not in Peace by Mel Starr (review)

In Rest Not in Peace ($14.99, ISBN 978-1-78264-008-0, The sixth chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, surgeon), by Mel Starr, there has been a death at Bampton Castle, near Oxford.. Master Hugh needs to determine if it was natural causes or murder. To make matters more complicated, Master Hugh had provided a sleeping potion to the deceased, Sir Henry Burley, guest of Lord Gilbert.

What really happened? Did he take too much sleeping powder or was he murdered?

About the Author: Mel Starr currently lives in Michigan. He has studied medieval surgery and medieval English.

My Thoughts: I thought Rest Not in Peace, by Mel Starr was an excellent book.

I always learn so much about so much about medieval history when I read Starr's books. One of my favorite parts about the book is the glossary, found at the front. Starr always lists such wonderful sounding dishes. I would enjoy finding recipes so my family can try the different dishes.

The mystery this time was so tricky that I was not sure who was guilty for killing Sir Henry Burley. I would like to read this book again, slowly, to see if I could figure out who the murderer was at the same time as Master Hugh.  

Rest Not in Peace was another good book in the sixth chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, surgeon. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy reading about Hugh or those who have not read the series yet.
