Mediocre medieval mystery.
on 20 August 2015
This is the first novel I have read by Peter Tonkin and I'm afraid I did not find his writing style at all to my taste. His extensive use of overblown narrative results in vast paragraphs of description which are at best uninteresting, if not downright tedious.
The storyline is scholarly, but lacks a compelling climax.
