Description
In Exeter in 1195, renovations at the new school in Smythen Street are disrupted by the discovery of a partially mummified corpse hidden in the rafters, and King's Crowner John de Wolfe is called to investigate, in this 11th book in the series (following The Elixir of Death). Richard de Revelle, Sir John's unscrupulous brother-in-law and the founder of the school, immediately blames Nicholas de Arundell, a young outlawed knight living rough on Dartmoor. For his part, Nicholas has good reason to bear a grudge against de Revelleóbut is he really a killer? After a second violent death, Sir John is forced to track down the "noble outlaw" in order to find the answers. Appointed to the office of the Keeper of the Pleas of the King's Crown in the last years of the 12th century, former Crusader knight John de Wolfe is a King's Crowner, or coroner, assigned to oversee local sheriffs and investigate all sudden deaths, murders, rapes, assaults, fires, wrecks, and catches of royal fish in Devon. Though John himself is fictional, in this humorous series from real-life pathologist Bernard Knight, many of the people he meets are real historical figures.

"Brings medieval Exeter to life with gritty realism, smells and all, but with an underlying sympathy and humor."óHistorical Novels Review
