Description
When the peat-cutters come to report the dead man they found in the bog, the archbishop's questioner Gil Cunningham is up in the roof-space of his mother's house, teaching swordplay to his new wife Alys. In his fifth historical mystery, 15th-century Scottish sleuth Cunningham follows clues that lead deep into a coal mine.

"Together with his lovely but intrepid wife, Alys, Gil investigates the murder of an unidentified man unceremoniously laid to rest in a peat bog.... Though a group of frenzied locals accuse an innocent woman of witchcraft, Gil and Alys dig deeper, uncovering a string of suspicious deaths that stretch back years in time. Trapped in a mine with a cold-blooded killer, Alys extracts the confession that clears an innocent suspect who stands ready to take the blame. [Pat] McIntosh artfully interweaves intrigue and history in this suspenseful medieval murder tale."Booklist
