Publisher's Summary

Although he was watching closely when the mummer was poisoned, it took Gil Cunningham several days and three more poisonings to work out how it was done.
Danny Gibson and Nanty Bothwell, rivals for the affections of Agnes Renfrew, the apothecary's pretty daughter, are also good friends.


What the Critics Say

"Will do for Glasgow in the 15th century what Ellis Peters and her Brother Cadfael did for Shrewsbury in the 12th." (Mystery Readers Journal)

back on form.

gil and alys are at kate's where a play is part of the entertainment. one of the actors is poisoned whilst performing. most of the people there witness it. none of the apothecaries there know of any poison that acts that fast on contact.
more murders for gil to solve. this time alys doesn't help very much until the end. she has her own problems to come to terms with.
another good story by pat macintosh set once again in Glasgow its back to good characterisation and plot. better than the last one (a stolen voice).
Andrew Watson does his usual good job of performing the book.
