5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Medieval Mystery 11 Mar 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

Michael Jecks has got his subject matter down to a fine art. His characters are so well established that they are like old friends to the reader. Also to write about the area in which he lives is a masterstroke and must make researching the books so much easier.

This is another book in the series of Knights Templar Mysteries set in Exeter and the surrounding areas and features Sir Baldwin de Furnshill , once a member of the now disbanded Knight's Templars and now Keeper of the King's Peace.

When a boy disappears the local idiot, who lost his own children many years ago is immediately put under suspicion. The local law officer whose own son disappeared years ago is determined to solve the mystery.

Sir Baldwin is asked for his assistance in solving the crime and he follows a lead to the manor of Bishop's Clyst. While he is there the body of a boy is found under a bridge, but strangely it is not the one who so recently went missing . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing murders 10 Feb 2013
By Lesley
Format:Paperback
Child abduction, murder, mystery and mental illness what more could you want from a book. It's all in there and makes uncomfortable reading at times, as things don't seem to have moved on much from then. That said, I loved the book and thought it added another dimension to the series. Detractors may want furture books to be like those in the past, but I liked the change in direction. Life wasn't a bowl of cherries in medieval England, get over it.
