Overview

The Knights Templar

They were warrior monks, dedicated to the protection of pilgrims in the Holy Land—until an avaricious king destroyed the order. One knight, however, escaped the stake, vowing justice for his murdered brothers.

A fatal tide of intolerance

With civil war looming, tensions are high in the town of Crediton—and the foul murder of a local gold merchant and assault on his daughter merely feed the flames. Keeper of the King's Peace and former Knight Templar, Sir Baldwin Furnshill, and his partner, Simon Puttock, bailiff of Lydford, must find the culprit and resist the temptation to quickly condemn the most obvious suspect. But their cool heads may not prevail, for rumors are spreading that suggest the lepers of St. Lawrence's hospital—the shunned outcasts of society—are somehow responsible for Crediton's current ills. And any delay on the part of Furnshill and Puttock in apprehending a killer may well lead to a full-scale slaughter of the despised unfortunates.

    Good Read

    This book was not what I expected which made it more enjoyable. It is a murder mystery set in medieval England at the time of the wars between Scotland and England which is barely relevant to the story. A leper hospital, an extramarital affair or two, a courtship (or a few), a good man and a good woman, love that is truly everlasting (applicable to several situations), and a good deal more make the story. Another reviewer can better tell the story than I can. I liked the author's style. It was halfway through the book that I realized the author was not taking me on crusade to the Holy Land, but he did take me on a journey of sorts: What is leprosy? How is one infected? Is there any cure for this horrible disease other than the miracle cures done by Jesus Christ? I went on a tangent of my own and my discoveries were interesting. In the days when Christ was walking the earth, there was no cure. That made His cures absolutely and without question miraculous! One of the leprous characters in the book was not a true leper. Imagine his elation upon learning that bit of information! That is the way the book went--here, there, everywhere, which usually dooms a book. Not here though. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author's mechanics of good writing were superb.

    Thank you, Mr. Jecks, for a good read.
