Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the 5th book in the Medieval Murderers series and, because I tend to read each of the authors individually anyway, I have enjoyed each of the composite books.

King Arthur's Bones is probably my favourite, charting the movement of the king's bones around Wales throughout the years. Some of the characters seem to be more finely-drawn than usual, which is probably why this is my favourite. Well worth a read!

I will not offer up a synopsis, but suffice it to say it was a most enjoyable read especially those portions written by Bernard Knight and Michael Jecks who can always be counted on for excellence in writing and weaving a tale. The other authors involved in this work are good too, but I have my preferences.

These are ok for a casual read, made up of several "mini" stories, by different authors, all with a common "theme" running through them. In this case, unsurprisingly, King Arthurs bones. I find some very well written, but some not so good. Not a bad book, but my no means great.

Not the best of the medieval murder series (a bit too far fetched) but still a good read and as usual accurate background history

I really got hooked on this following the story then it jumps about a little then seems to go off track I then gave up when it seemed to jump to a different story for the third time !!

Format: Kindle Edition
The first two chapters were really good and had good continuity. Chapter three began to lose the plot for me as I couldn't really see where it tied into the original story and theme. By the time I reached chapter four I thought I was reading an entirely different book! I do like the Medieval Murders books in general but I found this one disjointed and unconvincing and almost annoying at times. Not their best!

I found the stories shallow and disjointed, not flowing as well as others I have read. The postscript did not say whether it was fact or fiction
