Paul Doherty

Paul Doherty studied History at Liverpool and Oxford Universities, and is now headmaster of a school in Essex. He is the author of more than eighty historical mysteries including the Hugh Corbett, Mathilde of Westminster and Canterbury Tales medieval mystery series.

A Pilgrimage of Murder is the 17th book of the Sorrowful Mysteries of Brother Athelstan.

Recently I asked Doherty about what he was reading. His reply:
I am currently reading: George Saunders' Lincoln in the Bardo. This is set on the night of 22nd February 1862 in a Georgetown cemetery on the outskirts of Washington. Lincoln goes down there to mourn over his young son who has died of fever. Of course Lincoln is at an all-time low, grieving over his dead son whilst the civil war rages through the country he leads. This is a novel about the supernatural with other rich themes entwined. I find it absolutely marvelous.
