"Candace Robb's latest absorbing and carefully detailed work of historical fiction is A Twisted Vengeance. Robb is a compelling writer, skilled in conjuring a feel for life back then-both the sweeping backdrop of history and the day-to-day workings of a household in that turbulent period." -- Seattle Times "A historical mystery well worth your time with its satisfying, textured characters and hard-to-guess-where-it's-all-going plot." -- Criminal Element "Lovers of Shakespeare's Richard II will find Robb's intricate sequel to 2016's The Service of the Dead a particular treat. Kate Clifford is compelling and finely drawn, and the answers to a series of mysteries are highly satisfying." -- Publishers Weekly (starred) "A Twisted Vengeance will remind you of Shakespeare. A compelling female lead and solid historical details make this a satisfying read." -- Mystery Tribune "As with Robb's other books, this is rich in meticulous historical detail and vivid characters." -- Seattle Times [praise for the Kate Clifford series] "Robb's deft hand creates a realistic political and commercial climate as King Richard II's reign draws to a close in 1399, making this a satisfying historical read." -- Booklist [praise for the Kate Clifford series] "The author's research is evident in this book, as with her previous novels. Her knowledge of the time and place creates a strong foundation for an exciting and readable tale. Her characters are skillfully drawn, and the pacing is strategic. A very satisfying read." -- Historical Novels Review "The heroine's second adventure is most likely to appeal to fans of serious historical intrigue." -- Kirkus Reviews "Robb is an ace at re-creating the medieval setting." -- Booklist
