At the May Day dancing at Glasgow Cross, Gil Cunningham sees not only the woman who is going to be murdered, but her murderer as well. Gil is a recently qualified lawyer whose family still expect him to enter the priesthood. When he finds the body of a young woman in the new building at Glasgow Cathedral he is asked to investigate, and identifies the corpse as the runaway wife of cruel, unpleasant nobleman John Semphill. With the help of Maistre Pierre, the French master-mason, Gil must ask questions and seek a murderer in the heart of the city.

An exciting start to the series
An unusual 'detective' story set in medieval times
This is an easy listen, the story flows well, the characters are built up so that you feel you know them, and the backgrounds are described well, you can put yourself in the times that the story is set
I have not read a book like this previously
I love the varying accents, he brings warmth to the characters
Not really, the unfolding of the mystery and the story was at a pace I was happy with
I enjoy a mystery and wanted to try something different, I enjoyed this, it was fascinating to glimpse some of the ways people lived in that time, and I will certainly be reading more from this author
