"Another delightful and absorbing mystery from Mel Starr, keeping
the reader guessing as the corpses pile up in Prince Edward's
palace. Hugh de Singleton, of the dry wit and engaging humility, is
one of my favourite sleuths." Penelope Wilcock, British author and
"Prince Edward's Warrant is another fascinating chapter in the chronicle of the fourteenth-century surgeon Hugh de Singleton. A truly engrossing and entertaining read. Hugh is a most sympathetic character, well-versed and skilled in all matters of medicine. Mel Starr has created a truly believable character and skilfully evokes all the richness and poverty of the Middle Ages. A most fascinating read and a truly entertaining journey through the murky politics of Medieval England. A must for any reader interested in that period."
