An Excellent Mystery – Review in Verse

excellent mystery

The lady vanishes

Against all logic,

And against our wishes

As the reading public.


A young man believes,

And hopes for a suit —

As we turn the leaves

In hot pursuit.


Two brothers in the cloister

Are not what they seem,

As we struggle to decipher

The key to the scheme.


And through it all runs

The life medieval,

Where mystery summons

Small town upheaval.


And so gently it goes,

This elegant tale,

As Ellis Peters shows

Then lifts the veil.


An excellent mystery, indeed!

‘Tis well worth the read.
