Product description


Medieval England is powerfully evoked in these gritty forensic investigations, with Sir John de Wolfe, Devon's first county coroner, at the heart of each riveting tale. Bernard Knight, CBE, is Professor of Pathology at the University of Wales College of Medicine. During his distinguished forty-year career as a coroner, he was involved in many of Britain's major criminal cases. "Shots" John de Wolfe is a truly powerful character "Historical Novels Review" Knight brings medieval Exeter to life with gritty realism, smells and all, but with an underlying sympathy and humour


A decapitated body, a missing tinner, a disgruntled band of miners and a mad Saxon intent on destroying all things Norman are to be found in this medieval mystery featuring Crowner John. It seems only Gwyn, Crowner John's right-hand man can be of any help at all, until he's arrested for murder.
