were he to try to escape. The journey had been slow, too. That would not endear him to his master. Christ’s cods, the last thing he needed just now was to upset Despenser, when he had failed in his main task at the bastard bailiff’s house in Devon. Not much he could do about it, though.

It is 1325 and there is turmoil in England, but the Prophecy of St. Thomas's Holy Oil just might save King Edward II. It is believed that the king who is anointed with the oil will be a lion among men: he will conquer France, unite Christendom, and throw the heathens from the Holy Land. Edward’s reputation has been sullied following his rejection of his wife—Queen Isabella—after which he confiscated her income, exiled her servants, and took away her children. Having escaped her husband and traveled to France, Isabella attempts to negotiate peace with her brother, King Charles IV. Meanwhile, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, and his friend Bailiff Simon Puttock return from France with an urgent instruction for the King. Before long Baldwin and Simon find themselves at the center of a deadly court intrigue involving the most powerful and ruthless men in the country who will stop at nothing—not the least murder—to achieve their ambitions.

I am truly hooked. I go on to the next book with out pausing for a cup of tea or crumb of toast. They just get better and better. The look back into history, because of Jecks in depth research, makes it come alive.

Jecks is a meticulous historical researcher. The details of time and place are very believable. I enjoy the time I spend with him in the fourteenth century.
Still, I think the plots are too complicated and the books need a little editing.
All that said, I'll start the next one tomorrow.

I have absolutely loved every book in this series so far. Each one brings new excitement, new mystery and more educational information. Great writer!
Cordalas
Jecks is a good author who really gives his reader a feel for the times, and each character is fleshed out so that they are not just empty shells, but real people. He is not only a good mystery writer, but also a person who is knowledgeable about the period. I have read several of his books, and this series is a genuine delight. One wishes that history were taught that way.

Good story but not much mystery. It was easy to tell who did what. Still an interesting character presentation of the Earl.

Jecks writes good books. They are well researched detailed and convey the period and the social system. This one lives up to his reputation but is a trifle strained in the story line.
BroWelm
Jecks book are always interesting and difficult to put down and this book was as great as all of the others. I particularly like the research that was done about the Middle Ages.
I have been reading the whole series. This is another great one in this medieval crime seies based on historical facts.
