"Grisly fun! This fourth collaboration of the Medieval Murderers, six British writers of historical mysteries, begins in sixth-century Ireland, where a mad monk pens a book of enigmatic prophecies predicting all sorts of future mayhem. Accounts follow of six murder investigations told by the authors' signature sleuths, beginning in twelfth-century Essex, progressing to Shakespeare's London, and then jumping to the 22nd century, on the eve of Judgment Day. Mellifluous Paul Matthews has narrated other volumes by the participating scribes, so he comes to this one well prepared. His fine-tuned sense of dramatic propriety prevents excess while fueling tension and suspense. His fine voice and impeccable diction make the prose sound more eloquent than it reads on the page. Y.R.
