Master Hugh won the Black Prince’s favour when he helped to ease the Prince’s illness.

Now, in the autumn of 1372, the prince is suffering a relapse and sends to Bampton for Master Hugh to attend him. While at dinner in Kennington Palace, Sir Giles, the knight who escorted Hugh to London, is stricken and dies. Poison! Sir Giles is not popular, and there are many who would gladly see the fellow done away with… except for Prince Edward. The Black Prince feels a debt to the slain man because of his heroic behaviour at the Battle of Crecy, where the knight stood firm with the prince when the fight seemed of uncertain outcome. Despite caring little for Sir Giles, Master Hugh must once again place himself in jeopardy and seek to uncover the perpetrator of the crime…

Reviews for Prince Edward’s Warrant

"Another delightful and absorbing mystery from Mel Starr, keeping the reader guessing as the corpses pile up in Prince Edward's palace. Hugh de Singleton, of the dry wit and engaging humility, is one of my favourite sleuths." Penelope Wilcock, British author and blogger

"Prince Edward's Warrant is another fascinating chapter in the chronicle of the fourteenth-century surgeon Hugh de Singleton. A truly engrossing and entertaining read. Hugh is a most sympathetic character, well-versed and skilled in all matters of medicine.

Mel Starr has created a truly believable character and skilfully evokes all the richness and poverty of the Middle Ages. A most fascinating read and a truly entertaining journey through the murky politics of Medieval England. A must for any reader interested in that period." Paul Doherty, award-winning English author, educator, lecturer and historian
