“Grave Goods is the 3rd in the Mistress of the Art of Death Series.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I purchased the first book in this series several years ago from a discount rack at BAM. But I couldn’t get into it. Recently I acquired Grave Goods in audio form from a library purge sale. Knowing it was not the first in the series I was not going to listen until I had finished the previous installments. But a few weeks later I forgot & loaded it onto the pod. So glad I did.
I was happy to find I was not hindered by not having read the first 2 books previously.
This is a piece of historical fiction with small appearances by Henry II, who is hil-ar-i-ous.
An earthquake and, 20 years later, a fire at Glastonbury Abbey lead to a great discovery. Are they the bones of King Arthur & Queen Guinevere? If not, who? Who/what started the fire at the Abbey? That’s what Adelia Aguilar, better known as the Mistress of the Art of Death has been recruited to find out. But this isn’t an easy task for a woman in 1176 England.
