Вышла очередная книга Сэнсома, Tombland

Since the old King’s death, Matthew Shardlake has been working as a lawyer in the service of Henry’s younger daughter, the Lady Elizabeth. The gruesome murder of Edith Boleyn, the wife of John Boleyn – a distant Norfolk relation of Elizabeth's mother – which could have political implications for Elizabeth, brings Shardlake and his assistant Nicholas Overton to the summer assizes at Norwich. There they are reunited with Shardlake’s former assistant Jack Barak.

Следующая книга не новая, а родом с 90-х, но я о ней или узнала только что, или знала, но успела забыть.

Brother Cadfael, the much-loved medieval sleuth created by Ellis Peters, is depicted in the "Chronicles" as an enthusiastic gardener and herbalist, often excusing himself from his daily offices to tend the abbey gardens or work in his herbarium. He is also renowned for his great knowledge of plants, especially the exotic varieties he bought back to England from his travels throughout the Christian and Muslim worlds to raise and perfect in his own garden in Shrewsbury. This book recreates Brother Cadfael's herbal kingdom. It details in alphabetical order all the plants and herbs mentioned in the "Chronicles", and offers descriptions of their traditional uses in medieval times.
