It is summer 1323, Sir Baldwin and Simon are about to leave on a pilgrimage. They are going to travel across Europe to Santiago de Compostela. Foreign travel is dangerous even for well armed men, and attacks on pilgrims are common place, but an even greater menace hangs over the city of Santiago.
For those who have not ready any of Michael Jecks medieval novels I can recommend them heartily. This novel takes Simon and Sir Baldwin away from their West Country environment but loses nothing of its mystery and suspense. If you like medieval mysteries, these are as good as any around.

After reading this, I wavered between giving this either a 3 star or a 4 star rating; in the end I opted for 4 as the problems this has are minimal in comparison with the really excellent aspects to the tale.

I always remember reading a column in a newspaper by an order priest; he was a great historian as well, not only full stop but of the church, and I remember one time he said that in the pre-reformation years that Europe, despite obvious differences across the continent in culture, language (with Latin a great equaliser though), topology and climate, it was still nevertheless one big country. After reading this, I not only see what he meant, but can see that the author, Michael Jecks, knows this too and has managed to have this embedded in the pages.

Ok, new to the series. Will I read more? Go back and start in order? Yep, and look forward to doing so.

The central character, Sir Baldwin Furnhill; new to me but no doubt known by now by millions as this is the 15th outing in the series, is a strong, robust believable knight of the middle ages - a good man 'though far, far from perfect, blood on his hands (although I'll have to read earlier tales to find how much, if any in reality in terms of genuine guilt/culpability), goes off to show remorse to the Almighty, on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. He takes with him his friend, Bailiff, Simon Puttock. The two friends, as most pairings of friends are, are different yet similar, and thus compatible.

If you have already discovered this wonderful series, then this book slots into them very easily. Discovering our heroes away from Devon is a bit of a shock but they still manage to find murder and trouble. Well worth reading and the standard is still as superb as ever.

A pilgramage takes Simon and Baldwin to Spain, to Santiago de Compostela. On the way they encounter a vareity of characters and end up investigating the rape and murder of a girl. Shadows of the past threaten them, but they keep their wits about them. Another excellent book in the series with the pleasure of being moved to another climate and time in history. Nice to see another aspect of medieval life brought to our attention, in it's highly coloured and descriptive way.

Jecks is a fantastic writer of medieval murder mystery who has only gotten better over time. If you are new to this author, you may find yourself searching for the first in this series. Then you will work to the most recent tomb and be amazed that he only gets better over time. Jecks is truly a credit to good research and writing. I have seen his work in a group writing effort and his share stands out amongst his co-authors. If you like Jecks, tell a friend and take the time to write a brief review. I don't give away content, just tell you that compared to others who write in this period Jecks is by far the best!
