This book and the others in the series are competently written and reasonably researched. They give an insight into what life was like in that era and how basic and tenuous survival could be.
They have the added benefit of being sequential as you follow the same characters throughout the series and get to know them and their characters well.
They are, of course, murder mysteries and have enough complexity in their stories to hold your interest. For 'easy reading' and as a way of relaxing mentally, these books have a lot to recommend them.

This series gets better and better. The most explosive book so far, manages to capture the cathedral Vs Priory bickering without letting it get in the way of the main story, which is told at a storming pace.

For those readers who are familiar with Michael Jecks books, this one is just as good as all the rest. For those who have not read Michael Jecks, but like historical novels, particularly about medieval England, you are in for all real treat.

Michael Jecks has got his subject matter down to a fine art. His characters are so well established that they are like old friends to the reader. Also to write about the area in which he lives is a masterstroke and must make researching the books so much easier.

This is another book in the series of Knights Templar Mysteries set in Exeter and the surrounding areas and features Sir Baldwin de Furnshill , once a member of the now disbanded Knight's Templars and now Keeper of the King's Peace.

When a boy disappears the local idiot, who lost his own children many years ago is immediately put under suspicion. The local law officer whose own son disappeared years ago is determined to solve the mystery.

Sir Baldwin is asked for his assistance in solving the crime and he follows a lead to the manor of Bishop's Clyst. While he is there the body of a boy is found under a bridge, but strangely it is not the one who so recently went missing . . .
