It is the spring of 1297, and young wife Margaret Kerr is desperately afraid. Her merchant husband Roger has been missing since Martinmas. Has he been caught up in the swelling rebellion against the English? Is he even alive? Jack Sinclair, her husband's cousin and factor, has pledged to try to locate Roger in the city. When he is found stabbed to death, Margaret resolves she must ride to Edinburgh herself to uncover the truth. But Scotland is a country at war, Edinburgh an occupied city. With English soldiers patrolling the streets, it is no place for a woman alone. Margaret's mission is frowned upon, her arrival at her uncle's tavern unwelcome. And when she starts to ask questions she finds a city rife with closely guarded secrets and dangerous loyalties. Soon violence erupts outside the tavern and there is murder on their doorstep. Margaret discovers how little she had known either of Roger or Jack...… (mer)

Much as I like the Owen Archer series, this was a poor start to the new series. For me its main fault was being very boring. I found all the characters unsympathetic and their actions unrealistic. The convoluted plot never did seem to get anywhere. Disappointing all round. ( )

Thumbs up for effacina's review below. I would have given it 2 1/2 stars, but I'm not sure how one does halves using this interface. Robb doesn't rise above the level of competence as a writer on this one, which is in stark contrast to her brilliant writing of the Owen Archer series. There she makes us care about her characters and their fates, whereas in A Trust Betrayed one feels like one is just killing time in the company of not terribly interesting characters in a tense yet strangely unexciting environment. This author can do, and has done, much better. ( )

1297 scotland. Margaret Kerr's husband of 2 years has been away from home many months with no word and his cousin who went to look for him has been murdered, his body returned by Canon Andrew, her brother. she travles to Edinburgh to investigate and finds the town occupied by Edward I's army and everyone has secrets. She stays with her uncle murdoch at his tavern. Everyone knows all the answers she is seeking but because no one will tell her she causes trouble. this gets old and boring. There seems to be no really good reason why she is kept in the dark. The entire book would have been better condensed into three tight chapters. we know that athis is the beginning of a series dealing with the rebellion. My least favorite of the Robb books. ( )

I bought, and read, this book when I lived in Scotland. A good mystery set in the 13th century. First, Margaret Kerr's husband disappears, and then his cousin is found dead. She decides to find out what is happening, and is surprised to find out secrets about the men in her family that she never suspected. ( )
