TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 13 December 2006
Michael Jecks gave up a career in the computer industry when he began writing the internationally successful Templar series. Well all I can say is the Computer Industries loss is the reader's gain. He has now written about a score of the Knights Templar mystery books featuring Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and Bailiff Simon Puttock and there are more to follow. Michael's books are full of intrigue and mystery and they are particularly well researched. Mr. Jecks lives in the area he writes about and I am sure this must assist him a great deal with his background research.

1324, and there is much unrest in the England. The King has many enemies but the foremost among them Roger Mortimer has escaped from London's supposedly impregnable Tower. He has escaped to France and is making his plans to murder the King. But just as it seems his plans will succeed, the plot is uncovered and the hired assassin escapes the city.

Then the body of a local man and that of a King's messenger are in found in the streets of the city. The Bishop calls upon Sir Baldwin and his long time associate and friend, Bailiff Simon Puttock, to investigate the deaths and bring the culprit to justice. The messenger was carrying a dangerous secret and the Bishop is overwrought at the thought that it may fall into the wrong hands. Before it can be returned to his safe keeping. Sir Baldwin is reluctant to get involved, but he is a staunch royalist and will do anything within his power to protect his King and country. Can the pair find the murderer before he strikes again.

Once again Michael Jecks has written a Templar novel up to the high standard we have come to expect. The action centres around Exeter and the Coroner, Sir Richard de Welles, is on hand to aid Simon and Sir Baldwin with their investigations. Thoroughly engrossing.
