I did like this one a lot. The mystery was fascinating, and I enjoyed the new view into Robert Montgomery’s character. [Sept. 2010] ( )

The 6 th book in the Gil Cunningham murder mystery series. And it is important to read them in order.

Gil and Alys are investigating the return of a boy taken underhill by fairies because of the beauty of his voice and the mysterious departure of several adult singers, which involves spies, murder, bodies concealed in tanning pits. Think world's dirtiest jobs.

Her attention to medieval detail is wonderful, the lives and the beliefs of the people are wonderfully shown. Gil and Ays are well educated and do not find the "fair folk" the answer to all questions but the people who do are realistic. As are a the spinning, weaving, and tanning. ( )

Book description
In Sir William's remote part of Scotland it seems almost possible that a young boy could have been stolen away by the fairies and returned forty years later without having visibly aged. And if the boy isn't Davie Drummond, who is he? Then he suffers a succession of near-fatal "accidents." Could there be a connection with four other local singers who have vanished, one of them with political information of value to Scotland's enemies? Gil Cunningham and his wife Alys have been sent to Perthshire to investigate. [publisher's description from LOC.gov]
