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.

The second in this series finds Bailiff Simon Puttock and former Templar knight Sir Balwdin Furnshill again embroiled in murder in not so sleepy Devon. Agatha Kyteler, a local midwife and healer, regarded with superstition by the local villagers, is found with her throat slit. The two are called to find the guilty party and as they search, suspicion falls on a local lad who eventually confesses. Sir Baldwin and Simon are not convinced of his guilt and during their further investigations suspicions switch from their original suspect to many others, all who seem to have had motive and opportunity to commit the murder.

Really enjoyed this one. Found myself up late continuing to read as the mystery deepened. The characters are well written. Michael Jeck's descriptions of the landscape and his knowledge of medieval life, bring the stories to life. The plot is excellent. Just when you think you've got it sussed, there are new twists and turns. The ending too is unexpected. Just what a good murder mystery should deliver. Excellent read and recommended for all fans of Medieval murder mysteries.

I have just started re-reading this series having first read them 7 years ago. My memory is not what it was, so I was completely mystified as to who the murderer was (not unusual for me). As I live in Exeter some of the place-names are familiar to me (and some are either fabricated or have fallen into disuse). It is fascinating to be reminded about how long it took to travel any distance on horseback in the 14th century, especially during the winter. I wasn't quite sure which year this book was set in, but another reviewer has said it is in 1317, so 3 years after Simon and Baldwin first met in Book 1.

It was interesting that in this book it is Simon who solves the case, rather than Baldwin - who becomes distracted!

I have to first say that I have the entire series plus more Jecks titles. It is great that this excellent author and historical researcher is being republished in various formats. I can't tell you how many hours of reading pleasure I have had not to mention re-reading.

The second book in the series continues in the vein of the first, establishing our leads and taking a look at village life in the 1300s, while adding an intriguing mystery.
