(2016)
(A book in the Owen Archer series)
A Novella by

 
 
A mystery story about the danger of false miracles and the treachery of true believers, part of the “pleasing medieval series” (Library Journal). 

Magda the Riverwoman has called Owen Archer to her island hut in the middle of the River Ouse with a special favor—to guard a jar of human bones. No one in York is greedier than the relic dealers, the insatiable charlatans who sell flesh and bone as miracle cures, but Magda will not sell the remains at any price. Instead, she asks Owen to protect the jar and keep one eye out for the dark figure who’s been watching the island, waiting patiently for the right moment to strike…

This suspenseful short story is sure to delight long-time fans of Candace Robb’s Owen Archer series—and provide first-time readers with a gripping introduction to her beautifully rendered world of treachery and intrigue in medieval England.
 
Praise for the Owen Archer novels:
