Book Review: Ashes to Ashes

Ashes to Ashes
by Mel Starr

Master Hugh, Kate, and their children attend the Midsummer's Eve fire.  Early next morning Hugh hears the passing bell ring out from the Church of St. Beornwald, and moments later is summoned.  Tenants collecting the ashes to spread upon their fields have found burned bones. Hugh learns that the bones are those of a bailiff from a nearby manor.  Someone has slain him, and placed his body in the fire to destroy evidence of murder. Bailiffs are not popular.  Did this man die at the hand of some angry tenant?  Hugh soon discovers there is quite another reason for murder..
Mel Starr is an authority on medieval surgery and medieval English.  He lives in Michigan.

I've previously read Rest Not In Peace by Mel Starr so going into Ashes to Ashes I had high expectations. It of course didn't disappoint. Mel Starr not only has the knowledge to make this book make sense but it's also an enjoyable read. I of course was very interested throughout the book as it is a good mystery that's going to keep you with it the whole way. If you like The Advent of Murder or The Reichenbach Problem you'll love Ashes to Ashes.
