Hangman Blind by Cassandra Clark
Book DescriptionNovember, 1382. The month of the dead. At the Feast of St. Martin in the fifth year of King Richard's reign, a nun rides out for York and the Abbey of Meaux. But this is no ordinary journey. Rival popes, a boy on the English throne and a volatile peace in the savage aftermath of Wat Tyler's murder. Travelling alone, Hildegaard encounters a gibbet with five bloodied crow-stripped corpses, and later the body of a youth, brutally butchered. Who is he? And what is his connection to the hanged men? Murder will touch Hildegaard and those she loves even more closely as she rides on to her childhood home. Castle Hutton is riven by treachery. Old loyalties are shifting. Hildegard will need all her courage to counter the dark forces in the land. First in an engrossing new series of medieval mysteries, Hangman Blind introduces an intrepid new heroine.

Law of Angels, Paperback (September 2011)» View all books by Cassandra Clark
Summer, 1384. Storm-clouds of insurrection are gathering over England. Hildegard of Meaux - sleuth, spy and now an abbess - has found refuge from a world of violence and blood-feud at her new home in Yorkshire. But by taking a bonded maid into the fold, Hildegard has made a dangerous enemy.
US Kirkus Review » A medieval nun seeks justice for the poor and noble alike.As Sister Hildegard strikes out across rain-sodden Yorkshire in November of 1382, she searches for some small abbey where she and a few other women can tend the poor and she may grieve her lost husband. Instead, she finds six dead men in the woods - five hanged outlaws and one wayward youth. Lord Roger de Hutton might have tracked down the killers, but he's poisoned in his own feasting hall and saved only by Hildegard's herbs. To flush out the would-be murderer, Hildegard and Roger's Saxon steward Ulf help the lord play dead while they investigate both the stirrings of rebellion among the villeins and craftsmen and the intrigue among the lord's possible heirs. They're accompanied by Burthred, an observant young serf with a way with animals, and aided by the suspiciously charismatic Abbot of Meaux. While a few elements of the mystery are obvious, its complexities will resist most readers until the end.Deeply embedded in the historical events of the period, this is a rich tapestry; even the small figures are finely detailed and carefully situated in a dazzling array of events. An intriguing and evocative debut. (Kirkus Reviews)
