Chatter of the Maidens by Alys Clare

Book Description

The serenity of Hawkenlye Abbey has been disturbed by the arrival of a new nun and her two young sisters. Recently orphaned, Alba has had to leave her convent at Ely to take her grieving sisters far away from the scene of their sorrow. However Abbess Helewise cannot quite believe in the selflessness of this gesture; Sister Alba is, everyone agrees, a mean-spirited and turbulent presence. The Abbess's anxieties grow when her old friend Josse d'Acquin is brought to Hawkenlye, half dead from blood poisoning. Then a body is discovered. And one of the sisters goes missing. In order to discover what really lies behind Alba's flight to Hawkenlye, Helewise sets off to visit Ely. She uncovers not only a clever network of lies, but also, hidden in a burnt-out cottage, the horrific remains of a dead man...

Rustle of Silk by Alys Clare Rustle of Silk, Hardback (September 2016)

1603. Former ship's surgeon Gabriel Taverner is trying to re-establish himself as a physician in rural Devon. But it's not easy to gain the locals' trust, and several disturbing incidents convince him that at least one person does not welcome him. When he's called out to examine a body, he starts to uncover some darker aspects of the silk trade.

Shadowed Evil by Alys Clare Shadowed Evil, Hardback (July 2016)

February, 1212. Sir Josse d'Acquin and Helewise are summoned to Southfire Hall, where Josse's elderly uncle, Hugh, lies dying, surrounded by his children. But the pair soon discovers that Hugh's ill health is not the only cause of distress in the house, and the longer they remain there, the more they feel that something is very wrong ...

Night Wanderer by Alys Clare Night Wanderer, Hardback (January 2016)

When a body is found on a lonely river bank, its throat torn out, rumours abound that the legendary demon known as the Night Wanderer has returned to wreak havoc. It's up to apprentice healer Lassair to uncover the Night Wanderer's true identity and find out what he really wants - before he kills again.

Land of the Silver Dragon by Alys Clare Land of the Silver Dragon, Hardback (November 2015)

Apprentice healer Lassair isn't too alarmed when a travelling peddler relates a grisly tale of a red-bearded giant breaking into a woman's home and caving in her skull like an eggshell; peddlers, she has observed, tend towards the dramatic. But her attitude changes when she learns that the dead woman is a distant relation.
