Unfortunate Ends: On Murder and Misadventure in Medieval England, by Soren Lily (Unbound, 2022)

Eleven (well, ten really, and not the twelve promised on the back cover blurb) unusual medieval deaths are discussed. From the fun (albeit seemingly defunct) Twitter bot account tweeting summaries of medieval death rolls. However, the book version is slight in the extreme: a concept that hadn’t been stress-tested for book-length content. A bit of a disappointment, really.


My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
