As ever with Sir Baldwin and Simon, another excellent mystery. This one throws up many red herrings as you journey through. The death of the squire, a brother in need of money, a priest, servants who have agenda,s out on the moors, put together with the death of the new squire, who is only 5 years old, Sir Baldwin and Simon are plunged into a mystery that is as frustrating as any that have gone before. We also have them accompanied by their wives, who seem totally capable of throwing a new perspective to whatever clue they find puzzling.
Sir Baldwin and Simon Puttock are brilliant, what one misses the other doesn,t, and they do not miss much.
This is another excellent example of historical reading. The series is unmissable, as far as I am concerned, and once again I have the next two already lined up to read.
I was still no closer to guessing the murderer, as the story grew to a close. I have to say, the outcome was not one I would have got in a million years, when you read it, you will see what I mean.
Another book I was loathe to put down.
