5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Overseas Shipping
It has been at least five years since I was first introduced to this series by Michael Jecks. I soon found myself searching to find the early titles and have all to date. Why? The historical research is quite good, excellent if you will. Jecks' ability to then weave a great story into the history is better than most. It is truly remarkable that a writer could sustain...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure where it was going......
I am not normally a reader of novels, so keep that in mind. I found this an interesting 'day in the life' type of read, compulsive reading in that I was intrigued to know what the mystery was and where the Knights Templar connection lay. I failed to find either. There was a murder around page 400, but soon resolved. Am I just missing the point? As a book to pass the...

It has been at least five years since I was first introduced to this series by Michael Jecks. I soon found myself searching to find the early titles and have all to date. Why? The historical research is quite good, excellent if you will. Jecks' ability to then weave a great story into the history is better than most. It is truly remarkable that a writer could sustain a series set in in early 14th century England / France over so many titles. It is the lives of people in different "stations" and how they interact and live out those lives within a complex historical matrix. I should note that Jecks was originally published under Headline and is more recently published by Simon & Schuster, UK. More significantly I note that early titles keep reappearing in book stores so there is a call for this author and the series.

Bought this book for my wife, who really enjoys Michael Jecks' Knights Templar books - and this was no different, as she had her nose stuck into the pages and the plot for days on end!

Michael Jecks is a great author, who authentically and captivatingly captures the period about which he writes. What more can one say or ask of an author?!

As with all Michael Jecks's works this was a good read. He may have to either fit some new stories into Baldwin't early years or create a new protagonist. At 54 BLadwin is getting a little long in the tooth for the Merry Olde England of that day. Myae Baql;dwin needs a nephew or some such to take under ins wing and groom....

Anyway great read as always - love his work and the research behind the works

I always enjoyed Michael Jecks history books. I have read most of them. It has taken me longer to read this as I have the unfortunate task of looking after an invalid at this time.

I really enjoyed this book by Michael Jecks, one of his best I would say and I've read most of them. I enjoy the historical detail particularly around Gloucester and the part played by the Berkeley family in detaining King Edward II.

I loved this book. It brought to life a period in history which is very rarely covered in fiction. It is part of a wonderful series.
