A Quenchless Fire Paperback / softback

Part of the Matthias Barton series


When an injured man appears at the home of Sir Tobias, Coroner of Dorset, claiming to have devastating news of his son-in-law, he is compelled to investigate for the sake of his daughter and grandson. Matthias Barton is drawn into the investigation and travels to Calais to seek answers.

Here he and William, squire to Sir Tobias,discovers a sinister organisation designed to weaken the English soldiers in their failing battle against the French.

Meanwhile in Sherborne, the unrest grows stronger and the fire in the Abbey reveals a most gruesome discovery.

Matthias must gather his wits about him to help unravel this strange affair. This is the second in the series of medieval mysteries featuring the young schoolmaster Matthias Barton, set against the history of Sherborne and the surrounding area. `...her main characters and the lesser ones are very believable.

I hope very much that there is a sequel in the pipeline.

I am beginning to like Matthias Barton and I wish him well.' (Amazon)`This is really rather a good read.

Sherborne has its own Medieval following.' (Reader from Gloucester)
