This is the third book in the series of medieval mysteries featuring Sir Hugh Corbett. Obviously this is one of Paul Doherty's earlier offerings and he has since written many more books and is now an established author of medieval novels and has also added a number of novels on Egypt to his ever growing list of titles. Having said that it is one of his earlier offerings does not mean that it is inferior to his current books, quite the opposite. The Hugh Corbett mysteries were and are extremely popular and Paul Doherty is still adding to them.

Paul Doherty has the happy knack of making anything her writes about come to life for the reader. This book based on treason in the English and French courts is no exception. The sights and sounds of medieval England seem vividly real in this entertaining novel.

Edward I every the wary monarch suspects that his No. 1 enemy Philip IV of Spain has an ear at the English Court, in other words he has a spy ensconced at Edward's very door.. Hugh Corbett is commissioned to find and destroy the man or woman who is passing secrets to Spain. But this is no ordinary spy and rather than lose faith with the Spanish King, they will stop at nothing to ensure their anonymity.

One thing Doherty does well- very well in fact- is create and play with atmosphere. The characters may be a little wooden, themselves like mediaeval icons, the language may repeat at times, but the picture created is very dramatic and powerful and thoroughly engaging. It is very much the case that the journey is as enjoyable if not more so than the destination: there were times when you can almost step into remote welsh castles or chanceries in london- wherever Doherty in fact feels like taking you! And he does so convincingly. Add to that the myriad possibilities and subtleties of what is effectively a mediaeval underworld and the result is amazing. A dark and engaging jaunt through a strange, vividly realised, and fey world. Fantastic!

I am an avid fan of Paul Docherty and especially of the Hugh Corbett series.
Having read all of them to date, I have loved them all.
This one is up to Dohertys high standard.
