Started getting into theses novels by Michael Jecks and they are quite intriquing, ionce you get to know how the writer works, originally, I thought they were labourious, but then found after I stuck with it, that they were very clever and masterful bit of writing. Using some facts of that period and especially certain methods used by all parties it became a very interesting reading. Now I look forward to the next novel to pick up and start to read, my only wish would have been to follow the flow of the characters from their early creation right through, but alas there is no listing putting them in age order of the characters. Nothing worse than reading a book, then move onto the next book only to find you have now gone back 20years or so, please can we have books that follow that order, it would make much more interesting reading.

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.

What a great read, these books are absolutely superb, I just love them. Baldwin and Simon are the main characters of these books and they are always good value for money.

Enjoy all of these books but lost a star for the gore, was it really so violent in those times?

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.

Jecks is a wonderful storyteller, encompassing history and fiction. All your senses are awakened. This series should be a tv drama, like Cadfael.
