The Saltergare Psalter is published by The History Press (5 Nov. 2015)


Following on from The Crooked Spire, we return to late-medieval England for another thrilling mystery.


"The author powerfully evokes a sense of time and place ... and well plotted story of corruption and murder"-Eurocrime


"[Nickson] makes us feels as though we are living in what seems like a fourteenth-century version of dystopia, giving this remarkable novel a powerful immediacy. --Booklist


John the Carpenter, married and soon to become a father.  When an elderly man in Chesterfield is found dead, the coroner calls upon John’s mystery-solving expertise once again. Then the suspected murderer is found dead and a valuable Book of Psalms vanishes. John is suddenly embroiled in a string of crimes that threaten his own life and the safety of his new family.
