Overview

The 30th outing in the acclaimed series from medieval crime master Jecks


 
As the year 1326 draws to a close, London is in flames. King Edward II is a prisoner, and the forces of his vengeful queen, Isabella, and her lover Sir Roger Mortimer, are in the ascendant. The Bardi family, bankers who have funded the King, must look to their future with the Queen, steering a careful course between rival factions—if, that is, they can keep themselves alive. Others, too, find their loyalties torn. Guarding the deposed King on behalf of Mortimer, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and bailiff Simon Puttock find themselves entangled in a tightening net of conspiracy, greed, betrayal, and murder.

Publishers Weekly
Rebel forces cause Edward II, England’s unpopular king, to flee London at the violent start of Jecks’s engaging 30th Knights Templar mystery featuring Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and Simon Puttock (after 2010’s The Oath). The deposed monarch finds refuge in the Cotswolds, where Sir Baldwin and Simon are among his protectors. The Bardis, members of a Florentine banking family who have provided Edward with financial support, play a major role in the action, which revolves around plots to seize the English throne, several killings in London, and the appearance of a cache of gold. Jecks once again brings early 14th-century England to life with his encyclopedic knowledge of the period, though he’s less dexterous handling the large cast of characters, many of whom blur together. Series fans will eagerly await the sequel. (Nov.)

    I Could Not Wait So Got It From The UK

    You are fortunate to be able to obtain this title so soon after release in the UK. "It has been at least five years since I was first introduced to this series by Michael Jecks. I soon found myself searching to find the early titles and have all to date. Why? The historical research is quite good, excellent if you will. Jecks' ability to then weave a great story into the history is better than most. It is truly remarkable that a writer could sustain a series set in in early 14th century England / France over so many titles. It is the lives of people in different "stations" and how they interact and live out those lives within a complex historical matrix. I should note that Jecks was originally published under Headline and is more recently published by Simon & Schuster, UK. More significantly I note that early titles keep reappearing in book stores so there is a call for this author and the series."
