They Don't Come Better Than This,
This review is from: The Tolls of Death (Knights Templar) (Mass Market Paperback)
Jeck's has written another gripping story of murder and suspense. His main characters Sir Baldwin Furnshill and is friend Simon Puttock are starting to take on the familiarity of Holmes and Dr. Watson.
As is the case with most of Jeck's books the setting is the South West of England in the 14th century.
In the summer of 1323 in a Cornish village a young woman is found hanged alongside the dead bodies of her two children. Is this the act of a desperate woman or is there something far more sinister involved.
Sir Baldwin and Simon are called in to investigate, but this is no easy matter as most of the village are embroiled in feuds of one kind or another, including the garrison of the castle and a newly arrived squire.
As the escape of a traitor threatens to lead the country into civil war the pair must look beyond friendships and loyalties to find an evil killer.
