Hermitage, Wat and Some Nuns
(The Chronicles of Brother Hermitage #6)
by Howard of Warwick (2016)
When Brother Hermitage arrives at Shrewsbury in the summer of 1068 something is up. Or rather down. Gilder, the great merchant is dead and Hermitage’s urge to investigate is overwhelming.
His companions, Cwen and Wat, think this is a very bad idea.
This is the first story where the investigation isn’t imposed on Hermitage. His sense of righteousness sends him on a path of discovery. Still, there is a lot of silly nonsense from the characters as things play out to a conclusion where the trio work out who the murderer is.
The best aspect is that the witty banter between the characters really works. It seems that Howard (of Warwick) is getting better at his narrations.
