4.0 out of 5 stars More Mysteries to Solve for Hugh Corbett, October 21, 2006
This review is from: The Assassin in the Greenwood (Hardcover)
This is the seventh book in the series of medieval mysteries featuring Sir Hugh Corbett. Obviously this is one of Paul Doherty's earlier offerings and he has since written many more books and is now an established author of medieval novels and has also added a number of novels on Egypt to his ever growing list of titles. Having said that it is one of his earlier offerings does not mean that it is inferior to his current books, quite the opposite. The Hugh Corbett mysteries were and are extremely popular and Paul Doherty is still adding to them.

The year is 1302 and Hugh Corbett and his servant Ranulf have been despatched to Nottingham to look into the mystery surrounding the death of the Sheriff, who has been poisoned and a masked bandit has performed the barbaric act of cutting off the finger tips of the King's tax collector. Robin Hood has been pardoned by the King. Has he returned into Sherwood Forest? Is he the cause of the current problems.

At the same time as he is trying to investigate the crimes against the crown, Corbett is trying to dodge the attentions of an elusive assassin sent to kill him by none other than King Philip of France. He is also trying to solve a coded message that holds the key to where in Flanders the French King is going to attack.

Corbett and his servant Ranulf are becoming like old friends to the reader. Paul Doherty seems to have hit on a winning combination.
