‘The Colour of Shadows

When Seb Foxley discovers a child’s body in his workshop and another lad goes missing, our artist-cum-sleuth is perplexed at every turn. His investigations take him to Southwark, across London Bridge, where he becomes embroiled in the sinister shadows of the city’s underworld and nothing is quite as it seems. Bankside is a labyrinth of depravity and crime where every harlot intends the downfall of respectable men like Seb and every scoundrel has a secret. In a netherworld unlike anything he’s experienced before, can Seb unravel the murky mysteries of The Mermaid Tavern and what goes on behind its dilapidated shutters to recover the stolen innocent and restore him to his family?

Meanwhile, all is not as it should be in the Foxley household and lives are at hazard as Seb’s old nemesis returns to London. More than one noble lord is mad, bad and dangerous to know, as Seb finds out. About to become a father for the second time, arrested as a murder suspect and with his apprentices behaving badly, how is our hero ever going to win the day?

Joanne R Larner author of Richard Liveth Yet trilogy: 'I always look forward to a new 'Colour of...' book. I can't wait to see what escapades Seb Foxley and his brother, Jude, get up to next. They, and all the characters, are endearing and colourful. The books are always well written, conjuring 15th century London into the reader's mind and the plots are excellent!'

Matthew Lewis author of Richard III Loyalty Binds Me: ‘Toni Mount continues to delight with the superbly crafted Seb Foxley mysteries. Impeccable research and sculpted characters combine with an engaging narrative to create another irresistible story. This series goes from strength to strength, and I’m already looking forward to the next instalment’

J.P. Reedman, author of the I, RICHARD PLANTAGENET series: ‘Sebastian Foxley is the Cadfael of the 15th century. The Sebastian Foxley Medieval Mystery Series by Toni Mount is not only filled by dastardly murders and gripping intrigue but contains many well-researched historical facts from the Wars of the Roses era’

Mel Starr bestselling author of the Hugh de Singleton chronicles: ‘If I believed in reincarnation I would be willing to think that Toni Mount lived a previous life in 15th century London. The scents, the sights, the tastes of the late Middle Ages are superbly rendered. And the story is a page-turner as well.’
