Kate Sedley's fifteenth-century mysteries featuring the mystery-solving peddler known as Roger the Chapman are a fine example of the increasingly popular genre of historical mysteries. Roger believes he is called by God to solve the mystery of the disappearance of the Skelton children, who were spirited out of their stately manor and found murdered in the forest. Ric Jerrom reads the tale as though he too were divinely inspired. Characters are subtly but convincingly portrayed, and his gentle voice reassures the listener that truth shall triumph despite what seems like an impossible puzzle to solve.
