Publisher's Summary

The third Gil Cunningham murder mystery set in Medieval Glasgow. The barrel should have contained books - instead it held treasure and a severed head...Gil Cunningham and his old acquaintance, Glasgow merchant Augie Morison, expecting a delivery of books from the Low Countries, report the gruesome substitute to the Provost, and at the inquest the next morning Morison is accused of the murder and imprisoned.
He appeals to Gil, who sets out with his friend and future father in law Maistre Pierre, the French master-mason, to find the treasure's owner, trace the barrel and identify the dead man. The trail they follow leads them from the court of James IV at Stirling via a cooper's yard in Linlithgow, to another death on the bare slopes of the Pentland Hills.

another good book

in this the third book of the series Gil Cunningham is not trying to find a murderer but find who the head in a barrel of brine was. the victim has distinctive eyes.
whilst he is searching for a minstrel Alys and his sister Kate are asking questions of the merchants household after he has been arrested for the murder.
Another very good story by Pat McIntosh and well performed by Andrew Watson whose soft Scottish accent adds so much to the book.
recommended if you like historical crime fiction. t These books do need to be read in order. Book one The Harpers Quine, Book two The Nicholas feast
