This book is the best yet and without giving any spoilers, authority is challenged to its roots.... And after you get through all that... There is a Cliffhanger. Hurry up August for the next episode!
Please can you make this series into a TV series... It would be dramatic, hilarious and would be loved by a generation
The Prologue opens in a manner that is slightly different from Gregory’s norm: yes, someone dies – in this case Sir John Dallingridge – but we trot alongside the impending corpse who realises he is being slowly poisoned and is trying to deduce who has done the deed in order to ensure his legacy isn’t bequeathed to them. By his deathbed side is Sir John Moleyns, the latter’s wife, Egidia, and lawyer, Inge along with his medicus Barber Cook and some family members. As he dies, there is also a troubling assessment of those who might create his splendid tomb.
Suffice it to say, a few months later this lot have pitched up in Cambridge. Sir Moleyns is there as part of a ‘prison move’ having been found guilty of various upper class crimes against the medieval peasantry of England. Trouble is, he gets off to a bad start:
“’Tulyet will be sorry he offended me,’ he said softly. ‘And so will his town.’”
It is not a spoiler to reveal the opening scene is one that brings about the death of Chancellor Tynkell. He engages in a satanic struggle above St Mary’s Church (reminiscent of a scene from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”) during a ferocious storm that it witnessed by everyone before being expertly dispatched. No murderer is found and everyone thinks ‘Satan’ flew away towards Barnwell Fields.Read more ›
