The only thing I didn't like about it and many others I've read, is all of the typos and grammatical errors. I'm not sure why the editor/author did not catch the errors, but I wish more would take their time and proof their work.
More narrative would have improved the book tremendously.
Unlike others, I don't see it as convoluted and I did enjoy the dialogue. After all, the world is made up of conversations, not descriptions outside of our heads. We talk to people and they talk to us. We find out very interesting bits because of that.
I wasn't all that surprised by the end, although I know that the person who "went down" for the murders was probably not the actual murderer. That wasn't the important part, after all. It was getting there and hoping along the way that Sir Law didn't end up at the end of a rope.
Yes, there are some editing errors, but it is relatively rare to find a perfect book nowadays. We are all so casual about our writing--texting has ruined it, I'm afraid. Should the author/editor take more time checking? Yes. Does it detract greatly from the overall piece? Not so much.
The bottom line is that I will buy the next book in the series and perhaps hope for more than just one more.
Sir Law’s only prospect, Lord Blinsele, wants the knight to find the lord’s missing wife and the lover she ran off with. But when the bodies start piling up and Sir Law becomes a suspect, he needs to find the killer and clear his name before he hangs from the gallows.
The mystery is genuinely good, and eventually involves the titular Templar’s Cross, a relic from the Crusades. But my favorite part was the dialogue, which did a wonderful job portraying the dialect of a medieval Scotsman. (All the “ayes,” “willnae’s” and “dinnae’s” made me smile.) That, along with the author’s attention to historical detail, made me feel like I spent some quality time in fifteenth century Perth. Sir Law is an admirable character, and the protagonist of two more novels in the series. And I look forward to his next mystery.
