The mystery itself was not too complicated. The beauty of the earlier books of this series was not their complexity but the way the information was presented. Often it was vague and not enough and it was wonderful to see Eleanor and Thomas come together to brainstorm and solve it.

Thomas saved this book as he seemed to be the only one using his wits. Everyone else was either blinded by trust or lust. On a different note, I miss Eleanor's cat!

I had the murderer figured out as soon as the characters were introduced, so not much of a mystery. But did enjoy details of their medicines and what they believed caused illnesses.

Dry as dust. She spends too much time on detailed description of all that her characters do and say that the content becomes secondary, boring and unimportant. C. J. Sansom she is not.
