Summary
Herbalist and widow Bess Ellyott tries to escape the loss of her husband in Elizabethan London only to find that death is following her, and she may very well be next in Searcher of the Dead, the first in a new historical mystery series by Nancy Herriman. Living amid the cultural flowering, religious strife, and political storms of Tudor England, Bess Ellyott is an herbalist, a widow, and a hunted woman. She fled London after her husband was brutally murdered, but the bucolic town in the countryside where she lands will offer her no solace. She still doesn't know who killed her husband, but she knows one thing: The murderer is still out there. This becomes all too clear when Bess's brother-in-law, a prosperous merchant, is himself found dead--dangling from a tree, an apparent suicide. But Bess doesn't believe that for a moment, and nor do her neighbors. Competition is cutthroat in the 17th century, and word around the town holds that the dead man is a victim of rival merchants scheming to corner the wool market. Bess, though, is convinced the killer is out to destroy her family. Town constable Christopher Harwoode will cross members of his own family to help Bess find the killer--whose next target may very well be Queen Elizabeth I--in this unshakably gripping, devilishly unpredictable series debut
