The Poisoned Pilgrim (The Hangman's Daughter, #4)

The Poisoned Pilgrim (The Hangman's Daughter, #4)The Poisoned Pilgrim by Oliver Pötzsch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the last book in the series as of this writing and in it Magdalena has married Simon Fronswieser, the town medicus, and they have two sons. They have gone to the monastery of Andechs with a group of people from their home village of Schongau to give thanks for the health of their sons, Peter and Paul.

When they get there, they are confronted with a hideous series of murders and Magdalena sends for her father, who arrives with her two young sons whom I hope we will see more of.

As with the rest of the series, the descriptions of places of Bavaria and the lifestyle of the people in this era are fascinating and I always feel like I have added to my store of knowledge as well as been entertained.
