    1. Probably one of the best books I have ever read! The first time I ever read this author, who is consistently good - and extremely knowledgeable.

    2. Another short,but very well written novel. Doherty has been declared king of the medieval thriller rightfully.

    3. Too much Keep to the story line and less ritual from your church. It adds nothing to the tale to use the words or practices as you have done in this story.

    4. This is the second of the "Canterbury Tales" mysteries of PC Doherty that I've read. Like the first, it is more of a fantasy than a historical tale, with supernatural elements even more strongly present in Midnight Man. The story weaves a treasure hunt, the peasant's Revolt, and May Day celebration with religion, ghosts, and murder.Again, Doherty managed to surprise me with the identity of the perpetrators, but the mystery takes back stage to a morality play involving ghosts and demons and angel [...]

    5. There’s always a hint of the supernatural (in whatever shape) in these books, but it’s never been such an integral plot point until this entry. We not only get a regular “whodunit” murder in this story, but there’s also a good amount of “what happens after death” philosophy that put me somewhat in mind of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.

    6. The last in the series so far. He needs to hurry and write the next one. It's been 10 years since this one came out.
