The Apothecary Rose.

I have finished reading this book today.Written by Candace Robb. It is set in Medieval York. A murder, mystery. It is a good read. The story is centred around the ability of an archer(acting as a sleuth ) finding the murder of an anonymous pilgrim and then a nobleman. Reviews on the book state it is following on from Ellis Peters. This is true to a certain extent, as the apothecary deals in herbs and plants. The story also incorporates the life of the monks in the Minster.

I hope to visit York in a few weeks and will take a copy of the map in the book to see if I can trace any steps.

It is the first in the 'Owen Archer' series and I would like to track down the next book.
