I have only read the 2nd and 3rd books as the first is unavailable at the moment, but fabulous reading. A tournament of murders kept me guessing until the end. Who is the mysterious Barleycorn, who appears out of nowhere, who did he meet outside the tavern. When they get to Richards family home, what is the cause of all the ghostly goings on. There are outlaws, severed heads, writings in blood, a mysterious knight who nobody can identify, and some delicious murders.
If you have never read Paul Doherty before, do so, the Canterbury Pilgrimage mysteries are brilliant, all the storytellers are somehow intertwined, they have all met before in murderous circumstances, and are telling their tales brilliantly leaving each other wondering which pilgrims are involved in which tale.
The writing, the description and the historical content of life at that time is very well done.
I was slightly worried that it wouldn,t be the standard of Brother Athelstan, Hugh Corbett, or even the Roger Shallot series, but I find that I cannot wait to read the next pilgrims murderous tale.
This set of tales, even though I have only read two out of seven, are proving to be great reading. I already have the next one lined up.
You know you have a good book, when you cannot put it down.

HASH(0x9749cb7c) out of 5 stars New historical mystery series from prolific author 17 Oct. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
P.C.Doherty, an English headmaster with a family of 7 children still finds time to write 3000 words a day. In this fashion he writes in the region of 4 to 5 books a year-and gets them published! His knowledge of history is encyclopeadic and readers of his earlier books will not be disappointed with this new series which takes each of the Chaucher pilgrims to Canterbury and places them at the center of a murder mystery. Readers who enjoy Doherty's work ought to know that he writes under the following pseudonyms: C.L.Grace, Ann Dukthas, Paul Harding, Michael Clynes and his very latest, Anna Apostolou.

HASH(0x974ba39c) out of 5 stars One that may keep you up at night. 3 Sept. 2004
By Shirley Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This Canterbury pilgrim series of P.C. Doherty is a wonderful medieval series. This is the third book in the pilgrims' tales series, and I think the best so far. It has everything - intrigue, murder, war, retribution and even a ghost. The story tells of a young squire that goes back to the place of his birth to try to uncover the mystery surrounding his father's disgrace and ultimate death. He finds himself and his friends pitted against some very dangerous and unscrupulous men, but he is not deterred. With the help of his friend Cuthbert, and a few others that he picks up along the way he does determine who the traitor was that framed his father. There is a battle scene in this book that is probably the best description of a medieval battle of any that I've read. I certainly wish there were a few more books in this series. It's one that I can't seem to get enough of. Great stuff!

HASH(0x974ba3c0) out of 5 stars A serious page-turner 23 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Having read and enjoyed The Man of Law's Tale and The Knight's Tale, I was expecting to find The Franklin's Tale to be no less intriguing. My expectations were far exceeded. I was scarcely able to put it down, and, when I had finished it, I got my husband to read it, and HE couldn't put it down, either. This book is more "gothic" in flavor than the previous two, and perhaps that why I enjoyed it more. This has all the markings of a classic, one that I'll read again and again.

HASH(0x974ba1a4) out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING! 24 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Quite an excellent book. Doherty perfectly intermingles the pilgrim's conversations with the story told by the franklin. A page-turner and nearly impossible to put it down; I read it in two days! This book has all the classic murder mystery parts: death, sex, intrique, romance, and for those medieval fans, knights, ladies, verderers, castles, and of course those pilgrims. A five out of five stars!

HASH(0x974ba330) out of 5 stars Chaucer would be very happy! 18 Nov. 2013
By Readaholic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A perfect mixture of history,mystery, and fiction. Mr. Doherty has hit the mark. The prior inter-actions of the pilgrims come to light. Clues are given to their true nature ad their true reasons for going to Canterbury. The twists and turns are surprising. A qick, enticing read.
