As with Sarah Matthias’ debut this has some brilliantly described characters that you can visualise completely in your mind as if they were standing with you, not least Tom Fletcher himself. It’s also a terrific adventure story, rich in quirky historical detail and anecdote. A fantastic unputdownable historical whodunit.

Tom Fletcher And The Angel Of Death Synopsis

What the author said: "I wrote my second book, Tom Fletcher and the Angel of Death, for my children too. However, by now I had a publisher for my first book so I was much more disciplined in the way that I wrote. I still wrote it for my children but I had much more of an idea about how long I wanted it to be. My son, Charlie, read every chapter ‘hot off the press’ and is a really great critic. In fact, I am now writing my third book and he is reading it chapter by chapter and still keeping me to the mark."

When Brother Benedict is found dead in Saint Wilfred’s Beast House, eaten by Delilah, the lion he kept to terrorise the people of St Agnes-next-the Sea, there is no shortage of suspects.

But when the wrong man is accused of the crime, and threatened with an agonising death, young novice Tom Fletcher has no choice but to investigate.
