Mistress of the Art of Death

Mistress of the Art of Death - Ariana Franklin 3 ½ stars.
audio version

12th Century female doctor from the University of Salerno is sent to Cambridge, England to investigate the deaths of several children. A bit gruesome at times. Great characters—I especially loved the portrayal of Henry II. I really enjoyed this historical murder mystery and thought the narration by Rosalyn Landor was excellent. It would have been 4 stars for me, but the modern language and idioms sprinkled throughout as well as the doctor possessing medical knowledge well ahead of her time brought it down to 3 ½ stars. I will likely continue the series.
