Alys Clare Synopsis: A Rustle of Silk by Alys Clare is the first book in the Gabriel Taverner series. It is 1603, and former ship’s surgeon Gabriel Taverner is looking to rebuild his career as a country physician in rural Devon. But it’s not easy to gain the locals’ trust, and a series of disturbing incidents, increasingly menacing, convinces him that at least one person does not welcome his presence. Called out to examine a partially decomposed body next to the river, Gabriel discovers that he has a personal connection to the dead man. Teaming up with Coroner Theophilus Davey to find out how the man died, Gabriel uncovers some darker aspects of the lucrative silk trade which operates from nearby Plymouth. The more he finds out, the more frighteningly apparent it becomes that the people closest to him have been keeping secrets that put their lives in danger.
