4.0 out of 5 stars A Difficult Case for Sir Baldwin, 22 Aug 2006
This review is from: The Mad Monk Of Gidleigh (Knights Templar) (Paperback)
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.

Alone on the edge of Dartmoor, in a windswept chapel who could blame young priest, Mark, for seeking affection from the local miller's daughter, Mary? But soon his world will come crashing around his ears. Mary's body is found, she has been stabbed. They have been seen together and the young priest becomes the No. 1 suspect. When Mary's body is examined it becomes obvious that she was pregnant and this only seems to confirm Mark's guilt.

Keeper of the King's Peace Sir Baldwin and Bailiff Simon arrive to investigate and soon begin to have their doubts about the guilt of the priest. Mary it seems had many admirers. Could it not have been one of them who had murdered her in a fit of jealous rage. Also her father the miller is acting increasingly strangely and what exactly is the local Baron trying his best to hide from them. Finding the murderer will not be easy . . .
