Table of contents



In Europe the Phoney War hides carnage to come. At home for Christmas, Stefan is abruptly called to Laragh, an isolated mountain town. A postman has disappeared, believed killed, and Laragh's Guards are hiding something. Stefan is the nearest Special Branch detective, yet is he only there because Gregory wants him out of the way?

Laragh is close to the lake where Stefan's wife Maeve drowned years earlier, and when events expose a connection between the missing postman and her death, Stefan realises it wasn't an accident, but murder. And it will be a difficult, dangerous journey where Stefan has to finally confront the ghosts of the past not only in the mountains of Wicklow, but in Spain in the aftermath of its bloody Civil War, before he can return to Dublin to find the truth. But assorted nationalist movements are threatening to pull the place apart and the militarist regime has trouble keeping a lid on things.

Amid all the chaos the British consul goes missing, and Special Branch Seymour is sent to find him.

Born to an immigrant family in London's East End, Seymour has an acute linguistic ear - crucial in turn-of-the-century Trieste. As he attempts to solve the riddle of the consul's disappearance, Seymour discovers dark and disturbing corners of the city and finds that it holds the secrets of his own family's past.

A recommended historical series' Library Journal'His sympathetic portrayal of an unfamiliar culture, impeccable historical detail and entertaining dialogue make enjoyable reading' Sunday Telegraph. A city still recovering from the dramatic incidents of the so-called 'Tragic Week' when Catalonian conscripts bound for the unpopular war in Spanish Morocco had rebelled at the city's dockside against the royalist forces. In the fighting, many were killed, and afterwards, even more put in prison. Including an Englishman, who was later found dead in his cell. The dead man had been a prominent businessman in Gibraltar, so what had he been doing in Barcelona?

What part did he play in the illicit three-way trade between Gibraltar, Spanish Morocco and Barcelona? And just how did he really meet his end - murdered, in a prison cell? The case, in Gibraltar's view, cries out for investigation - and by someone independent of the Spanish authorities. So Scotland Yard are summoned to send out one of their men - but who? Seymour ticks all the right boxes - he has experience of the tangled diplomatic world in that part of the Mediterranean. He speaks foreign languages. And possibly most importantly of all - he grew up near the docks of London's East End, so with any luck he knows how to swim if pushed in the water.

In , over a century after its foundation in Cambridge, the college of Michaelhouse is facing a serious shortfall of funds and competition from upstarts rivals such as Zachary Hostel.

Their problems are made no easier by the hostility of the town's inhabitants who favour the university moving away to the Fens.

This simmering tension threatens to break into violence when a well-known tradesman is found dead in one of the colleges. Matthew Bartholomew knows he was poisoned but cannot identify the actual substance, never mind the killer. He also worries that other illnesses and deaths may have been caused by the effluent from his sister's dye works. Torn between loyalties to his kin and to his college, he fears the truth may destroy both his personal and professional life, but he knows he must use his skills as a physician to discover the truth before many more lose their lives entirely.

The twenty second chronicle of Matthew Bartholomew. Identifying the murderer of the Chancellor of the University is not the only challenge facing physician Matthew Bartholomew. Many of his patients have been made worse by the ministrations of a 'surgeon' recently arrived from Nottingham, his sister is being rooked by the mason she has commissioned to build her husband's tomb, and his friend, Brother Michael, has been offered a Bishopric which will cause him to leave Cambridge.

Brother Michael, keen to leave the University in good order, is determined that the new Chancellor will be a man of his choosing. The number of contenders putting themselves forward for election threatens to get out of control, then more deaths in mysterious circumstances make it appear that someone is taking extreme measures to manipulate the competition.

With passions running high and a bold killer at large, both Bartholomew and Brother Michael fear the very future of the University is at stake. The fourth chronicle in the Matthew Bartholomew series. The winter of has been appallingly wet, there is a fever outbreak amongst the poorer townspeople and the country is not yet fully recovered from the aftermath of the plague. The increasing reputation and wealth of the Cambridge colleges are causing dangerous tensions between the town, Church and University. Matthew Bartholomew is called to look into the deaths of three members of the University of who died from drinking poisoned wine, and soon he stumbles upon criminal activities that implicate his relatives, friends and colleagues - so he must solve the case before matters in the town get out of hand Our Books See all Books.

Fortunately Batholomew and Michael and the regular cast of supporting characters are as engaging as ever and the ending was good, so I got something out of it, but I hope the pace picks up a bit with the next one. May 29, William rated it it was ok Shelves: This is the tenth book in the series and the tenth that I have read and it may well be my last. I find other books in this genre "hard to put down", but I am starting to find these books to be "hard to hold on to".

    The multitude of characters and the drawn out story lines make reading these books a chore rather than a pleasure. Also, does the author have to make everyone other than the main character somehow evil or antagonistic? Can't Bartholomew have at least one or two "normal" people in hi This is the tenth book in the series and the tenth that I have read and it may well be my last. Can't Bartholomew have at least one or two "normal" people in his life?? Apr 23, Pammy rated it really liked it.

    Once again, excellent level of historical accuracy, coupled with an intriguing, if sometimes overly complex, plotline. The characters were superbly drawn, as usual. One to read when you fancy a bit of a mental workout! May 03, Madge rated it really liked it. Based on historical crime fiction genre: I adore what Susanna Gregory has done in the world of historical crime fiction. Detailed, thorough, comprehensive, and very much in order, without being in overkill drive.

    I enjoyed this book so much. It gave me so many chuckles, much laughter, and pleasure. Nov 30, David Brown rated it really liked it. Continuing a good run of late, this is a complex and confusing tale with multiple murders, plenty of red herrings, personality feuds and medical mishaps to keep you guessing till the very end.

    More characters are introduced, some are sketched out more and Bartholomew's universe becomes an ever more colourful if not any less dangerous place to be. Feb 06, Laura rated it it was amazing. I do love Susanna Gregory's books. The familiar chracters are growing with each book. I loved when Matthew Bartholomew finally works out who the killer is and the added twist at the end. However i have a feeling that Cambridge is just as dangerous as Oxford and Morse!

    Nov 06, Connie rated it liked it. I've enjoyed this entire serious, but this one was not my favorite. The author seemed to go around and around with the same information and repeated clues with no real progress in the story until near the end. Feb 21, Georgia Lengyel rated it it was amazing Shelves: A really great ending. Jan 11, Andy Field rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book.

    See a Problem?

    Normal tangled plot lines and bafflement for Matthew and Michael followed by dawning realisation. A really good sense of the medieval in this novel. Mar 27, Mary G.

    Very Good and Interesting look at Cambridge. Mar 29, Grace Lambie rated it it was amazing Shelves: May 25, Anietta rated it it was amazing Shelves: The atmosphere of medieval Cambridge with it's scholars and townfolk are compelling. Jul 31, Zorah rated it really liked it. I enjoy Susanna Gregory's characters, her plots and the historical tidbits she encorporates into her stories. Jul 12, Bryan rated it it was amazing. Many twists and turns. Keeps you guessing to the very end. Oct 13, Philip Cook rated it really liked it Shelves: I don't know which makes me smile the most, the repartee shared by Matthew and Michael or the hilarious antics of the choir.

    Whichever - a thoroughly enjoyable read. On to the next in the series!

AKA Simon Beaufort She writes detective fiction, and is noted for her series of mediaeval mysteries featuring Matthew Bartholomew, a teacher of medicine and investigator of murders in 14th-century Cambridge.

    These books may have some aspects in common with the Ellis Peters Cadfael series, the mediaeval adventures of a highly intelligent Benedictine monk and herbalist who came to the Benedictine order late in an eventful life, bringing with him considerable secular experience and wisdom combined with a deal of native wit. Sceptical of superstition, he is somewhat ahead of his time, and much accurate historical detail is woven into the adventures.

    But there any resemblance to the comparatively warm-hearted Cadfael series ends: The first in the series, A Plague on Both Your Houses is set against the ravages of the Black Death and subsequent novels take much of their subject matter from the attempts of society to recover from this disaster. These novels bear the marks of much detailed research into mediaeval conditions - many of the supporting characters have names taken from the documentation of the time, referenced at the end of each book - and bring vividly to life the all-pervading squalor of living conditions in England during the Middle Ages.

    The deep-rooted and pervasive practice of traditional leechcraft as it contrasts with the dawning science of evidence-based medicine is a common bone of contention between Matthew and the students he teaches at Michaelhouse College now part of Trinity College, Cambridge , whilst the conflict between the students of Cambridge and the townsfolk continually threatens to escalate into violence.

    Another series of books, set just after the Restoration of Charles II and featuring Thomas Chaloner, detective and former spy, began with A Conspiracy of Violence published in January , and continues with The Body in the Thames, published in hardback edition January Other books in the series.
