The Western Wind – Samantha Harvey

This novel by Samantha Harvey, her fourth book, is set in 15th Century Somerset and is a mediaeval detective story. The corpse of John Newman turns up, snagged on a branch in the river . . . and then disappears.

The Guardian review of the book reads

The Western Wind is as densely packed as all of Harvey’s work: it’s a historical novel full of the liveliness and gristle of the period it depicts; an absorbing mystery with an unpredictable flurry of twists in its last few pages; a scarily nuanced examination of a long-term moral collapse; a beautifully conceived and entangled metaphor for Britain’s shifting relationship with Europe. But most of all it’s a deeply human novel of the grace to be found in people.
