I read the latest in this series first on my kindle so wanted to read the other books Bernard Knight has written with this character. So far I have read the first book and are on the 2nd and they are good. The set was a good value way of buying these books @ less than half of the RRP of the box set and works out about [...] a book. The company was fast despite the christmas rush, well packed and brand new as promised

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By piscator on 3 Mar 2010
I was given the 10 book set, which was unfortunate, as reading these books one after another serves only to draw attention to this author's weaknesses. Knight writes vigorously but not well: his repetitive verbal formulae are sufficiently noticeable within each book, but over the series they become ridiculously predictable- the delectable Hilda, the homely Evelyn, the sprightly Enyd, and so on. As for historical accuracy, the details of a coroner's job are well described and Knight evokes something of the life of an ex-Crusader, but he is often inaccurate (and I suspect uninterested) about ecclesiastical details and makes no attempt to understand how an intelligent 12c person might think.While Knight's plots are usually interesting, often exciting, his characters are not, and the worst offender in this regard is John de Wolfe himself, forever grunting his way about Exeter looking like a black bird of prey, groping and pinching the plump thigh of the buxom Nesta until we wish she would clout him with one of her own quart pots.
