Started getting into theses novels by Michael Jecks and they are quite intriquing, ionce you get to know how the writer works, originally, I thought they were labourious, but then found after I stuck with it, that they were very clever and masterful bit of writing. Using some facts of that period and especially certain methods used by all parties it became a very interesting reading. Now I look forward to the next novel to pick up and start to read, my only wish would have been to follow the flow of the characters from their early creation right through, but alas there is no listing putting them in age order of the characters. Nothing worse than reading a book, then move onto the next book only to find you have now gone back 20years or so, please can we have books that follow that order, it would make much more interesting reading.

Format: Paperback
This is the fifth book in Michael Jeck's entertaining Knights Templar Mysteries. The main characters Sir Baldwin de Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace and his friend the Bailiff Simon Puttock are now old friends to the reader. Combine the inter action between the main characters with the beautiful background of west country Devon and it is obvious that Michael Jecks is on to a winner with his increasingly popular books.

Medieval novels are becoming increasingly popular with the reading public and there are a number of well written books by authors such as Paul Doherty, Bernard Knight, Susanna Gregory, to name but a few. Michael Jecks is steadily getting himself on a par with these fine novelists.

Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his close friend the Bailiff Simon Puttock are visiting Tavistock, as guests of the Abbot, intending to enjoy the fair and all the town has to offer. Responsible for justice in the area, the Abbot enlists the help of his friends when a headless body is found. But there is one big problem. How can they identify the victim without first finding the head?

I enjoy all of M. Jecks books on the knight Templar, I thought I read them all only to find some on kindle books that I had not read, this was a very pleasant surprise. If you enjoy crime, I never have come to terms as to why I do enjoy reading crime stories, and history you will learn about the past and the hard way of life in the Medieval days.

The historical detail is meticulous and detailed in the author's note. It is particularly interesting to one who lives in Devon or has special interests in the place or time. There is a marvellous description of hunting with dogs,showing the excitement and feel of the chase which is one of the best descriptions I have ever read and brings the whole scene to life.

I found the characters a bit mystifying to begin with, and sometimes words that are used, that I have never heard off, which I find frustrating as I have to keep flipping backwards and forwards to see how they fit into the storyline or how they are connected.
