The Unquiet Bones is Michigan teacher Melvin Starr's first-in-a-series novel set in 14th century England, in an area outside of Oxford. Starr wrote a wonderful story which seems to have been ghost-written by a true 14th century surgeon.
I'm looking forward to reading more of Starr's work.

This unassuming surgeon is an interesting and likeable character who becomes more appealing as he stumbles further into a career in solving puzzles related to crime. There is such a realistic sense of the era portrayed here that you will feel as though you are walking through a land struggling to recover from the devastations of the plague. A very enjoyable read - but as subsequent stories evolve Hugh grows and develops into a fully realized character - so beware - this book leads you into an addictive series and you will soon be hoping the author is writing more.
