Death at the Wedding Feast by Deryn Lake
John Rawlings is back… and this time he’s battling against a prophecy of his own death.
Apothecary John Rawlings feels that no good will come from the intended marriage between Lady Sidmouth’s daughter and the Earl of Austel, who is fifty-two years her senior with a cruel reputation.
As the wedding day approaches, John feels increasingly uneasy, and he is especially mindful of a vision his daughter had about an evil old woman who may do him harm. Before too long John’s fears are confirmed, and he soon finds himself at the centre of a murderous plot that must be unravelled…
Ten Little Wizards by Michael Kurland
It’s the year 1988 in the Angevin Empire – an alternative universe much like our own, save for two vital differences: the House of Plantagenet still rules, and the science of magic has displaced the magic of science.
But magic can’t solve everything, and when Lord Darcy – the Angevin Empire’s chief investigator – is faced with three impossible crimes involving a wizard, it quickly becomes the most daunting puzzle yet…
This first-class continuation of the amazing characters created by the late Randall Garrett will have you hooked from start to finish.
