Overview

On their return home from their pilgrimage, Baldwin and Simon's ship is attacked off the coast of the Scilly Isles by pirates and storms and Simon looks on in horror as Baldwin is swept overboard. Washed ashore on the tiny island of Ennor, Simon is distraught to think that his closest friend is dead, but he has to put aside his grief when the master of the castle, Ranulph de Blancminster, orders him to investigate the murder of the island's tax gatherer. Ranulph is convinced that one of the the lawless inhabitants of the neighbouring island of St Nicholas is the culprit and prepares to attack. Meanwhile Baldwin himself has been washed up on St Nicholas and is nursed back to health by the beautiful Tedia. He uncovers a different picture of the island as he too begins to investigate the murder. Although there are plenty of suspects, Baldwin finds it impossible to penetrate the tight network of secrets and loyalties that bind the villagers in this isolated community. As Balwin and Simon's parallel investigations bring them closer to the truth, they become embroiled in the bitter rivalry between the two island communities. Can they uncover the truth in time to prevent a massacre?

Since I’m always on the lookout for good historical fiction, I’m surprised I’ve never heard of this author or series before, as it’s clearly very popular and long running in Europe. I didn’t bother to figure out which book in the series is the first, but began with this one and loved it. It takes place in 1323 and follows a pair of good friends around as they solve a murder mystery. The story is well done and feels authentic, but my favorite bits always involve the two friends, not unlike the Aubrey/Maturin series by Patrick O’Brian. There’s a real warmth between them and I enjoyed all of their exchanges, this won’t be the last book in this series I read, very pleasurable.
