Unhallowed Ground is the fourth book in the Hugh de Singleton series. If you are a fan of this series by Mel Starr you won’t be disappointed!
Hugh de Singleton is bailiff to Sir Gilbert in addition to being a surgeon and a detective in 14th century Bampton, England. Hugh and Katie are now married. (Hugh and Katie met and courted in the previous book A Trail of Ink) Thomas atte Bridge has apparently committed suicide. Hugh is not so sure and finds clues that seem to point to murder and not suicide.
I really enjoy the characters in these stories. They are very well thought out. Mel Starr has done an excellent job in researching the time period and I really enjoy reading about medieval England. I really like the 5 page glossary in the front of the book to help with terms that may be unfamiliar to the reader.
I am also excited to know there will be a 5th book in this series! As I mentioned these books are a series but are easily read as a stand alone book. If you love the medieval time period along with some mystery and suspense you won’t be disappointed!
