Coming Soon–A Murdered Peace, Kate Clifford 3

A Murdered Peace will be published on 11 December, and just in case you haven’t YET preordered the trade paperback or e-book, here are some glowing reviews and an interview to entice you.

The Historical Novel Society says: “Robb deftly weaves in historical background and details, ranging from political context to facets of daily life. Fans of medieval history will enjoy the details of running a household and cooking, the history behind women’s jewelry, and the intrigues between different factions in York and beyond. Mystery fans will appreciate how Robb manages the many characters and plot twists, tying up seemingly loose ends into a creative and rational outcome. Kate Clifford is an intriguing character in Robb’s oeuvre, privileged enough to mix with the upper classes, yet streetwise and welcoming to the poor. Through her, readers are afforded a well-rounded view of 15th-century life, as well as a page-turner of a tale.” I’m all smiles! Click here for the full review (which reveals something delicious for Owen Archer fans).

Robin Agnew, owner of Aunt Agatha’s Mystery Bookshop (now online), posted this review of A Murdered Peace on the shop’s blog. And she also interviewed me for her new blog on the Mystery Scene magazine site–click here to read the interview. We’re old friends, so this was a lot of fun.

I am thrilled the book is being received enthusiastically (Publishers Weekly recommended it in their holiday guide!), for I love these characters. It was tough to drag myself away from them to resume the Owen Archer series. But never fear, I’ve just reviewed and returned the copy edited manuscript of A Conspiracy of Wolves, the 11th book in the Owen Archer series, and it’s off to the printer! It will be out in hardcover in the UK on 30 April 2019, and in hardcover and e-book in the US and around the world on 1 August. I’ll be in England for some talks and signings in May–stay tuned for details!

  1. Why the 3-4 month wait for the US edition? Is there a way to order the UK edition?

    • Hi Bob. I love your eagerness! This is how Severn House stages it–they are located in London, though they are very active in the US market. For physical books you can order from Waterstones or Foyles online, or that other place, the “.co.uk” version. 😉 Felicitations of the season! Candace

  3. Berend’s story did not end as badly as I feared it would, but he had too much “history” to return to Kate’s household.

    Oh, and thanks for remembering my birthday in the glossary. 😉

      Margaret? I never say never, but at the moment my focus is on my York stories.
      Thank you for being such an eager reader!
