A Swarming of Bees

by Theresa Tomlinson

Set in 7th century Northumbria at a time of real social and religious change, this engaging murder mystery is a must for all fans of Ellis Peters, strong female protagonists or Whitby, North Yorkshire.

Extract

Who would share their suspicions with these frightening rough-mouths? An ageing herb-wife on a mule would be a familiar sight and much less of a threat. Many who lived and worked about the abbey trusted her, and, what's more almost everyone owed her favours.
