Not the greatest mystery, but the setting and historical details are interesting. Didn't turn me off of the series - will probably try it again at some point - but certainly didn't raise it on my to-read list. Mar 15, Emg rated it it was ok. Slow and not very interesting. Jul 06, Robert rated it liked it Shelves: This series of one of over 20 historical mystery series I'm reading through, very slowly.

Owen is a strong character as is Lucie, his wife, and the York setting makes for a good mix of people and some connection to the larger English scene. This book focuses on the hospital which, as the author explains in her historical note at the end, is more of a long term care facility, more focused on spiritual than physical care. There are a large number of interesting characters and I truly hope that Ali This series of one of over 20 historical mystery series I'm reading through, very slowly. There are a large number of interesting characters and I truly hope that Alisoun will return.

As I cycle through my series, Archer is always a welcome return. I gave this volume 3 stars because it is solid, furthers the larger narrative, but isn't brilliant in either the US or UK senses of that word. May 29, Argum rated it really liked it Shelves: Bad things are afoot at St Lawrence hospital. The Archbishop lends Owen to his nephew to get to the bottom of the mess at the hospital. There are thefts and deaths of pensioners including Bess's uncle. There is also a small girl whose family has died that Magda and Owen are trying to take some care of despite her obstinacy.

All these threads come together the motive is obscure but the bad guy seems likely almost from the start. Lots of character plot moving in this one setti Plague has returned. Lots of character plot moving in this one setting up interesting things to come in the future.

Oct 05, Kathy rated it really liked it. This was well constructed with a good bit of historical research on how the public responded to the third visit of the plague in Favorite characters made their appearances along with a cast of bad actors behind murders and theft at St Leonard's.

Owen again took advantage of help from Bess who had personal loss in the game while Lucie and Jasper kept very busy tending the apothecary creating and providing remedies.

Jan 30, Sharon rated it really liked it. The date is The plague is rampant.

An interesting cast of characters, and a good description of the the midth century life. Dec 12, Chana rated it liked it Shelves: As a mystery I found it underwhelming, it wasn't that well written.

What was interesting is that the setting is accurate. There was a St. Leonard's Hospital in York, there was an outbreak of plague in The ruins of the hospital are still there. I found the 5 pages of author's notes to be the most interesting part of the book. Dec 12, Sandy rated it really liked it.

This is the 5th in the series of Owen Archer, the spy of the Archbishop of York. In this installment Owen is called upon to investigate the murder of aging patients at St. Leonards Hospital, and the theft of valuables from the church while York is in the midst of the Plague and many people have fled the city for the country hoping to avoid death. This was another good one in the series. I liked this book with the others in York helping I enjoyed the characters in this book.

Most of the time these are not really involved in the spying as they were this time. I loved the mystery and the tale in this book. Sep 11, Marcia rated it really liked it. I have to say that I'm enjoying the series and will read all the books. Some present a greater mystery than others. However read them for the people the author brings to life. Watch as history unfolds its self and enjoy the mysteries she weaves in between real events! As the books move on the characters become our friends. It make learning history very interesting to me!

The Riddle of St. Leonard's

The Owen Archer series continues to deliver. Another series of murders during an outbreak of the plague complicate life for everyone. There seems to be a motive--money--but it goes deeper than that, of course. I very much enjoy reading historical fiction and Candace Robb is a master at telling these tales. There is always a thread of truth in her stories and that makes them most interesting. Really enjoying this series of Owen Archer. Moves right along, holds one's interest. Looking forward to the next Owen Archer book. Love how the author tells the reader what is fact, what is fiction.
