There’s always a hint of the supernatural (in whatever shape) in these books, but it’s never been such an integral plot point until this entry. We not only get a regular “whodunit” murder in this story, but there’s also a good amount of “what happens after death” philosophy that put me somewhat in mind of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.

Great book. Unexpectedly intriguing read with overtones of CS Lewis and Charles Williams. Fascinating, and very well done, insights into classic medieval Christian theology of the afterlife... all delivered in the midst of a Chaucerian tale that delivers on all levels for a mystery buff (which is why I got it out in the first place).
