HASH(0x9ef08768) out of 5 stars Just as Good as the Rest July 21 2006
By J. Chippindale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
For those readers who are familiar with Michael Jecks books, this one is just as good as all the rest. For those who have not read Michael Jecks, but like historical novels, particularly about medieval England, you are in for all real treat.

The two main characters in the books are Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and Bailiff Simon Puttock. Sir Baldwin is an ex Crusader knight, who has managed to escape the wrath of the French King who ordered the destruction of the Order and all of its members.

Sir Baldwin is now the head of the family manor after the death of his brother and is also Keeper of the King's Peace in Devon.

Word reaches Simon that a gang of men have broken into the house of his servant Hugh and attacked the family. When Simon reaches the cottage he find it burnt to the ground and the bodies already buried. It would seem that Hugh must have perished in a dreadful accident, but Simon and Sir Baldwin begin to suspect that there is much more to it than that

HASH(0x9ef087bc) out of 5 stars More Murder and Mayhem in Merrie Old England! May 13 2009
By Mike O'Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Murder most foul raises its ugly head once again in Michael Jecks' ongoing 'Knights Templar' series but this time the loss is a personal one for the team of Furnshill and Puttock. Puttock's former servant, Hugh, his wife and son have been slaughtered and other Iddesleigh residents terrorized by unknown villains. As the Keeper of the King's Peace and his old friend and their wives journey to the scene of the crime to investigate, the reader is plunged into yet another entertaining medieval murder mystery.

As events turn out, Hugh's death is apparently wrapped up in the ongoing duel of wits between two competing manors. Discovering just who the murderers are and how the whole puzzle falls together takes up the book's 500 pages, a task not made easier as bodies pile up.

A FRIAR'S BLOODFEUD is vintage Jecks. His ability to construct intricate storylines that have the reader frantically turning page after page, his wide-ranging knowledge of medieval England and, most importantly, his ability to construct multi-dimensional characters are all in evidence.

As much as I have enjoyed the 'Knights Templar' series, I also find myself coming away from the stories with new insights about humanity circa 1300. Reading A FRIAR'S BLOODFEUD left me appalled at the casual brutality with which the 'haves' of medieval England treated the 'have nots.' Though they were knights, the conduct of the two opposing masters of Fishleigh and Monkleigh was reprehensible but probably typical of those times.

In any case, Furnshill and Puttock triumph in the end but you'll have to read A FRIAR'S BLOODFEUD to find out who did it and why. Along the way, you'll be treated to another marvelous, insightful and wonderfully entertaining journey through medieval England. Highly recommended.
HASH(0x9ef08bf4) out of 5 stars Petite and petty warfare between lords ravages like a storm. May 22 2010
By I should be at the gym - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
In this the 20th of the Knights Templar Mysteries of Devon-based writer Michael Jecks, we watch in dread--along with the protagonists Sir Baldwin de Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, and Bailiff Simon Puttock--as Sir Odo, who serves a vassal of Lord Hugh de Courtnay (a powerful lord in several of Jecks's tales), and Sir Geoffrey, a Despenser man, escalate their intra-county cold war into something raw and fierce that carelessly drags into its cruelty the lives of innocents, as such petite and petty wars did 1,000s of times during the Middle Ages in Britain and Europe. Most troubling of all, the clash of these two men and their machinations engulf Hugh, Simon's servant. It is up to Baldwin and Simon, along with Baldwin's servant Edgar, to work to salvage a vestige of justice from the harsh events spinning out of control. But even as our heroes become the most clear-eyed center of a storm whirling about them, they uncover shocking realities that rest behind the Odo-Geoffrey feud, and are faced with the reality that in war, justice that they rightly cherish so dearly can be messy and come from unexpected quarters.
HASH(0x9ef08bdc) out of 5 stars A Dandy Medieval Who Dunnit June 5 2015
By gerb - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is one of thirty-one books in the "Knight Templar" series. They are all dandy "who dunnit" mystery books with a difference: They are set in the early fourteenth century in England. Michael Jecks has done a lot of research into the history of this era to get his facts straight. The background of the plot is a nation just recovering from a series of devastating famines and suffering under a cruel and stupid king: Edward II who makes his great granddaddy, King John, look like a benevolent saint. Although these books follow a chronological order with a continuing thread, any of the books can be read by itself. Beware, once I started, I was hooked until I read all thirty-one of them.
HASH(0x9ef0a0b4) out of 5 stars The Clues are in the Book July 10 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As usual, Jecks keeps to his recipe of great characters, plausible events, fascinating venues and impeccable attention to historical details.

This one is special because the mystery itself takes center stage. It can be solved before it is revealed, but I bet you won't get it.
