The Demon Archer (Hugh Corbett Mysteries, Book 11): A twisting medieval murder mystery
 
 

A solution not even Hugh Corbett could have foreseen...

Hugh Corbett is faced with a case with endless possibilities in Paul Doherty's gripping medieval mystery, The Demon Archer. Perfect for Michael Jecks and Ellis Peters.


'The maestro of medieval mystery... As with all Doherty's historical whodunits, it is packed with salty dialogue, the smells and superstitions of the 14th century, not to mention the political intrigues' - Books Magazine

The death of Lord Henry Fitzalan on the feast of St Matthew, 1303, is a matter widely reported but little mourned. Infamous for his lecherous tendencies, his midnight trysts with a coven of witches and his boundless self-interest, he was a man of few friends. So when Hugh Corbett is asked to bring his murderer to justice it is not a matter of finding a suspect but of choosing between them. Immediate suspicion falls on Lord Henry's chief verderer, Robert Verlian. His daughter had been the focus of the Lord's roving eye in the weeks before his death and he was not a man to take no for an answer. But the culprit could just as easily be Sir William, the dead man's younger brother. It is no secret that Sir William covets the Fitzalan estate, but would he kill to inherit it? For Sir Hugh Corbett the possibilities are endless, but even he could never have imagined the real truth behind the murder...
