Book Description

June 11 2009
The twenty-seventh novel in Michael Jecks's medieval Knights Templar series. King Edward II is furious when he learns that his wife Queen Isabella has defied him by remaining in France with their son. As the unfortunate messengers of this news, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his friend, Bailiff Simon Puttock, are dismissed from court. Returning home to Devon, they are shocked to discover that outlaws now hold sway in the land. When two clerics are found murdered, Baldwin and Simon must investigate. But the culprit is a friend of Dispenser and the King, and in taking the matter further they could be accused of treason. So they decide to leave the affair to others. Until, that is, Simon's own daughter comes under threat, and all hell is let loose...

5.0 out of 5 stars I Have It Sept. 3 2009
By Bookaholic - Published on
No synopsis, just a readers impression. I couldn't believe that Jecks could do any better, but he has. Whether you are a Jecks fan or new to him, this title is most worth the read! If you have missed older titles, I would offer them up as historical (14th century) murder mystery at its best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of grimness, not much plot April 29 2010
By Monastery Librarian - Published on
I have read the entire series and this is the first book that I considered not finishing. The plot is weak and the characters seem to be acting "out-of-character" with the rest of the series for no good reason. The Despenser is a bad guy. I got this several books ago. This book just seems to work too hard to make everything horrible for our lead characters to no purpose. Lots of messy storylines that never came together. Not up to Jecks normal standards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit scattered - but good Jan. 31 2010
By Max Power - Published on
I think this is only the second Jecks book I have read.
Few comments, I found it a little bit of a struggle trying to keep all the various characters/locations/plots together at times. It jumped around quite a bit and without any real familiarity (and reading it in stages over about a week) I struggled to keep everything straight a little at times.
Secondly, although it is described as a mystery there is precious little in it that is remotely mysterious. You pretty much know who does what and why most of the time.
Lastly, I don't know what Publisher's Weekly is talking about - the 'period language' is almost unnoticeable.
In all it is an interesting read for lovers of historical fiction and if you can keep all the threads properly intertwined you should enjoy it.

I've read of the earlier books in this series and this continues on the story line of the previous books. A well done addition to the series.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another good one from Michael Jecks April 23 2014

I love the Knight Templar series, and I especially love the attention Jecks pays to following actual historical events. Although the series has taken to leaving unfinished business at the end of each installment, it is still good enough that it leaves me looking for the next one.
