Description
It is 1326, in this 28th entry in Michael Jecks's Knights Templar historical mystery series (following No Law in the Land), and King Edward II is furious when his estranged wife Queen Isabella refuses to leave France, flaunting her adulterous relationship with the king's sworn enemy Sir Roger Mortimer. But all of England prepares for invasion after Isabella betroths their son to the daughter of the Count of Hainault. In the midst of this turmoil, Bishop Stapledon, Treasurer of England, has been receiving highly credible death threats—but from whom? Sir Baldwin de Furnshill—Keeper of the King's Peace—and his friend Bailiff Simon Puttock must find an assassin before he can strike. Since The Last Templar appeared more than 20 years ago, Jecks has given us a rare and realistic view of England in the early 14th century through the adventures of Sir Baldwin, a former Knight Templar, and Simon Puttock, bailiff of Lydford Castle. Jecks depicts a time of enormous change, as the language of authority shifted from French to English, the feudal system was broken, new towns sprang up, and the incompetent King Edward II saw his power crumble.

"[The book] takes its time bringing series lead Baldwin de Furnshill into the main plot, but readers won't mind the wait.... Almost half the book goes by before the bishop asks his old friend de Furnshill, keeper of the king's peace and investigator of suspicious deaths, for help in identifying the author of the threats. The letters somehow managed to find their way into the bishop's inner sanctum from a number of possible culprits.... Jecks once again captures the spirit of the period with another exciting visit to 14th-century England."—Publishers Weekly
