This sequel to The Hunted Hare, and 2nd in the "Aidan mystery series" is full of surprises. I certainly wasn't expecting to be treated to the rich history of Holy Island (the red dot on the map, near the top) and of Northumbria.
While the mystery itself may have been a bit predictable, the richness of the landscape and the depth of the characters certainly was not. I found myself drawn into the medieval history, taught by the characters, of the ancient Christians on Lindisfarne. For anyone who enjoys a well-written, well-rounded story with education served on the side, this is the book for you!
