With three films to be made of these dramatic events, interest will be high, so be prepared and read of the mysterious and intriguing events portrayed in the Bayeux tapestry, which features in the second Belinda Lawrence mystery novel, THE EMBROIDERED CORPSE. Join Belinda in her search for the solution to the secret hidden in the tapestry – and unravel this exciting murder mystery!
THE EMBROIDERED CORPSE a Belinda Lawrence mystery.
“I’m not terribly familiar with this period of history but my inner conspiracy theorist was thoroughly engaged by the well-researched details and intriguing speculations about the Bayeux Tapestry, the historical events it portrays and the royal lineage of England. The resolution to the story was very much in keeping with the events that preceded it (not always a given in crime fiction these days) ….
All in all this is a thoroughly entertaining read and especially recommended to those who enjoy stories with a historical twist.”
