Crime and mystery fiction

Listen to a sample

Franklin is one of the very best creators of medieval whodunits writing today.


Almost indecently thrilling.

The New York Times

Feisty and delightful series heroine... easy, enjoyable summer reading.

Literary Review

An exhilarating whodunit and my favourite book of the year. I'd like to crown Ariana Franklin Queen of the Historical Mystery.
