Book Review: THE STING of JUSTICE by Cora Harrison
I don't usually find myself engrossed in historical mysteries, however, this excellent book snatched my interest immediately and never released it.
Both the plot and the characters drew me in, as did the peculiarites of medieval Irish law. Each chapter is prefaced with a short excerpt of law that foreshadows the plot without giving it away and explains the mores of the sixteen century in the Burren. Harrison paints vivid characters and a tangible setting that comes alive with her description and characterization.
My rating: (4 Star) Read it in a couple of sittings, in between other IMPORTANT stuff I had to do. You’ll really enjoy it.
The Sting of Justince will be released in hardcover on December 1, 2009 by Minotaur Books.
