In the tradition of Ellis Peters, A Plague on Both Your Houses introduces the physician Matthew Bartholomew, whose unorthodox but effective treatment of his patients frequently draws accusations of heresy from his more traditional colleagues. Besides his practice, Bartholomew is teacher of Medicine at Michaelhouse, part of the fledgling University of Cambridge. In 1348, the inhabitants of Cambridge live under the shadow of a terrible pestilence that has ravaged Europe and is travelling relentlessly eastward towards England. Bartholomew, however, is distracted by the sudden and inexplicable death of the Master of Michaelhouse - a death the University authorities do not want investigated. When three more scholars die in mysterious circumstances, Bartholomew defies the University and begins his own enquiry. His pursuit for the truth leads him into a complex tangle of lies and intrigue that causes him to question the innocence of his closest friends, and even his family. And then the Black Death finally arrives and Bartholomew is dragged deeper and deeper into a quagmire which threatens not only his life, but the continued existence of the University and the future of the town.… (mere)

A Plague on Both Your Houses
3 Stars

The Black Death is slowly making its way across Europe and toward England. At the same time, a series of mysteries deaths at Cambridge University arouses the suspicions of Matthew Bartholomew, a doctor and scholar at Michaelhouse college. As Bartholomew investigates, he uncovers a horrific web of lies and intrigue that makes him question those closest to him and may result in the destruction of the university itself.

The history of the rivalry between Oxford and Cambridge and the descriptions of the advent of the plague in England (symptoms and treatments) are particularly interesting. Unfortunately, the mystery is not as compelling as it becomes overly complex with several convoluted threads and an abundance of characters with a mish-mash of motivations and agendas.

Aside from Bartholomew, none of the characters are fleshed out well and it is difficult to become attached to any of them. Thus, the inevitable deaths due to the plague or murder fails to evoke an emotional response and there is very little tension or suspense.

All in all, a decent enough historical mystery and I may continue with the series, but it isn’t a priority.

Sympathetic protagonist, and interesting period detail, especially about the sweep of the plague. Physician Matthew Bartholomew tries to help his plague patients whilst investigating various murders at his 14th century Cambridge college. Maybe slightly overlong and a bit converluted. ( )

Matthew Bartholomew is a physician in 14th century Cambridge. The University is in its early days and relations between town and gown are tense. Members of the university colleges start to die and the Master of Michaelhouse is found dead in bizarre circumstances. Bartholomew tries to investigate the deaths and to uncover a complex plot but then the bubonic plague hits the country.

A dense plot which is a little unsatisfying in its unravelling does not detract from a really entertaining book. ( )
