Praise for Searcher of the Dead:
“Solid…Readers who relish details of daily life in a Tudor town and dialogue littered with “zounds” and “good morrow” will enjoy this story most; romance fans will savor the budding attraction between Bess and Kit. Herriman is off to a promising start with this Tudor historical.”
