Non so davvero come pormi riguardo questo libro, mi ha suscitato sentimenti contrastanti.
E' innegabile che mi abbia appassionato, dato che l'ho divorato e che ogni volta che iniziavo a leggerlo non riuscivo a smettere; è altrettanto vero però che al di là dell'aver saputo suscitare in me tutta questa curiosità non gli trovo altri pregi.
Il primo e più grande problema è uno che riscontro spesso nei romanzi storici: perchè darsi la pena di costruire un' ambientazione particolare, magari anche a costo di lunghe ricerche, se poi i personaggi sembrano uomini e donne di oggi finiti lì per sbaglio? Ecco, qui siamo nel XII secolo e la protagonista è più emancipata di tante donne moderne, per non parlare del fatto che le sue nozioni di medicina sono secoli avanti rispetto ai tempi: queste esagerazioni non solo minano la credibilità della storia, ma trasformano la protagonista in una Mary Sue con cui sarà difficile empatizzare, anche perchè ormai nel 2021 il cliché della "donna diversa dalle altre" lo trovo superato e vagamente irritante; in tema di cliché non dimentichiamo l'immancabile sottotrama romance, di cui non si sentiva il bisogno e che allunga il brodo di una vicenda già troppo tirata per le lunghe.
Per il resto la soluzione del mistero è logica ma non particolarmente brillante ed anche la scrittura non è degna di nota, scorrevole e tanto basta.
Insomma a fine lettura mi sono ritrovata insoddisfatta e senza la minima voglia di leggere il successivo, eppure mentre leggevo me lo sono proprio goduto. Mah. Stranezze che capitano a noi lettori. ( )

4 1/2 stars for this one. I love medieval historical mysteries, and was thrilled to discover this new to me series. Ms. Franklin (I understand that she is no longer with us unfortunately), captures the sights, sounds, smells and culture of the 12th century so well that it makes the book very real and very chilling. This a realistic and gritty mystery with a very strong lead character. The story is set in Cambridge during the time of Henry II, who we actually meet in this book. Four children have been taken and subsequently found horribly tortured and murdered in Cambridge, and the good people of Cambridge are blaming the Jewish community for it. Adelia, accompanied by Simon and Mansur have been sent from Salerno by their king to help King Henry II find the killer or killers. Henry wants the killer of children Adelia is a very skilled "mistress of death". She can almost always determine whether or not someone has been murdered or not, and can usually determine the cause of death after examination of the body. (in other words, a medieval ME). Simon is a Jewish investigator from Salerno and Mansur is a Moor who is sent as a bodyguard for the sleuthing pair. The book is very exciting, and there is lots going on, and all the while it felt like I was right there with Adelia and her crew. We meet some truly colourful characters, and also some very evil ones. This is a solidly written historical mystery with a plot that will keep you turning pages and with characters that become friends before you are done. Highly recommended to those who love believable and realistic historical fiction. ( )

I came into this book thinking that it would be set in the Rennaisance with the protagonist as a rare female assassin; in actuality the novel is set in Plantagenet England with the protagonist being a female doctor who specializes in forensics. Not sure where I got this assumption, but clearly I judge books based on their titles and not at all on their back-cover summaries... Either way, I was completely drawn into the story, first by the carefully drawn cast of characters and then by the horrific plot. Ariana and company are tasked with solving the mystery behind the murders of four Cambridge children - a mystery which isn't truely revealed until the climax as the author keeps the reader as much in the dark as she does her characters. Even when the murderer is caught the horror does not end, as his accomplice is almost pardoned by the power of the Church; this ending leaves the reader with a lingering sense of malise, even when justice is served, since we are left with the knowledge that the court system is flawed in that time, which has certain unsettling similarities with the courts in our own time.

Gripping and really interesting mystery, where I didn't guess who did it, AND I loved the protagonist. I think I'll pick up the rest of this series as I have time. ( )

Adelia is a forensic pathologist trained at the Salerno School of Medicine in 1178. She joins two others, Simon of Naples, and Mansur, Adelia's bodyguard and Muslim eunuch, at the request of the King of Sicily to travel to Cambridge, England and find out who has been killing village children. The Jews have been blamed and are now hiding in an area that is protected by King Edward II. Edward wants them to either be cleared of the crime or he will dispose of them all.

I love historical mysteries and it's very difficult to find ones with engaging female characters. I liked the way all the characters were introduced so the reader knows from the beginning who the suspect pool is. I found much of the local language difficult to understand at first, but once I got into the book it became easier to figure out. The first half of the book was a bit too slow moving for me but I really enjoyed the last half, which left me feeling more positive about my review. I don't know when I'll get around to it but I would like to continue with the second book in the series when I get a chance.

What he gets is Adelia Aguilar, a doctor whose independent mind and arrogant manner are as unorthodox as her profession. Adelia is a delight and her spirited efforts to stop the killings, while tending to the sick, making friends and finding romance, add to our appreciation of her forensic skills. But the lonely figure who truly stands out in Franklin’s vibrant tapestry of medieval life is King Henry — an enlightened monarch condemned to live in dark times.
