Format: Hardcover
I am a big fan of Michael Jeck's Templar series, which now runs to a considerable number of books. The first book The Last Templar having been written in 1995. This book being number twenty five in the series. The author has on occasions taken his lead character, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill away from his manor in the West country and sent him further afield, even in one book to the shrine at Compestela, in Spain. For me personally the books that feature Sir Baldwin, Keeper of the King's Peace for Devon and the surrounding area, ably assisted in his duties by his friend, Bailiff Simon Puttock, are best when our worthy knight stays close to home, but that is just my own opinion and anyway the opportunity to read a new book in the series is always a something to look forward to.

In the previous book, The Templar, the Queen and Her Lover, Sir Baldwin had been sent to Paris, to escort Isabella, Queen of England in her task of trying to bring peace between England and France. In this book, The Prophecy of Death, having had false accusations of murder laid against him while in France, Sir Baldwin and his good friend Simon are more than a little relieved to be back across the channel in England, but that relief is to be short-lived.

Sir Baldwin and Simon soon find themselves embroiled in the devious goings on of the English court and are desperate to get away from the subterfuge and back biting that seem common place in Edward`s court. The relative peace and quiet of the West country seems a long way away. Sir Baldwin, once a member of the disbanded Templar knight's is always fearful of his past catching up with him.

I will keep it simple. If you enjoy reasonably sound historical settings wherein a great tale of murder, mystery, etc. is woven, Jecks is an author you can't put down and impatiently wait for his next book. U.K. readers are fortunate to have first crack at his books because of the delay in release in the U.S. But, I have been known to be unable to wait that long.

After being introduced to Jecks, I had to obtain his earlier works. I don't usually do that. His writing skills are superb and each succeeding book gets better unlike some authors who lose the ability to sustain characters over time. I actually am current to 2009 and am truly amazed to see how he can get better over time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Jecks Just Gets Better 19 Sept. 2008
By A_Bookaholic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First, I am thankful that new books in the Knights Templar Mystery series are being released more quickly in the U.S. Second, Jecks does carefully research his work and uses history as a back ground to weave wonderful mysteries in early 14th century England. I accidentally came upon Jecks and his friend Bernard Knight, also an author of note not to mention forensic pathologist, a couple of years ago. I was hooked. Good historical research and good tellers of tales. I had wondered how Jecks could possibly top his last work, yet The Prophecy of Death managed to meet the mark square on. Thank you Michael for another great effort in historical murder mystery set in medieval England.
