The Harper’s Quine by Pat McIntosh

The Harper's Quine - a Gil Cunningham MysteryThis is one of a series of murder mysteries all investigated by Gilbert Cunningham.

Set in medieval Glasgow when Gil is on the verge of becoming a priest. He discovers the body of a murdered lady who turns out to be linked to the harper.

He investigates (and solves) the murder, and falls in love along the way (so that puts an end to becoming a priest!).

It’s an interesting tale, with lots of use of historically very accurate terms and words. But I found it rather hard to get into and not at all gripping. You’d be much better advised to read the Cadfael series by Peter Ellis.


  1. Perhaps I missed something? :? That was a really good read
