Paul stared, forcing his mind back. But the other was out at the back. It was probably the door to her room. That’s over there? Baldwin confirmed, jerking his head toward the block across the yard

He apologized, said that she had annoyed him, and that was that. Did he say how she had irritated him? Baldwin said. Not really, no, frowned the innkeeper

A company of mercenaries is in residence in the town of Crediton. Although they are commonplace in 14th-century England, this group is particularly troublesome, seducing the local girls and showing no respect for anyone. When a robbery takes place among the mercenaries, Sir Baldwin Furnshill and Simon Puttock are on hand to investigate. Then a young girl is discovered murdered, hidden in a chest. This is only the first of the Crediton Killings—and as murder follows brutal murder, Furnshill and Puttock must discover the killer's identity before he strikes yet again.

A company of mercenaries take up temporary residence at an inn in Crediton, Devonshire during the 14th century. Silver plate is stolen from the leader of the mercenaries and Sir Baldwin Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace is called in to investigate helped by his friend, Simon Puttock, bailiff of Lydford. A young recruit is found with some of the plate but Baldwin suspects he is not the real thief. Then a young tavern maiden is found stabbed to death in a trunk belonging to the leader of the mercenaries. While investigating the theft and the murder some other murders take place. Balwin is hard pressed to determine if the theft and the murders are related, who is responsible and how to stop him.

This is a fine 14th century medieval England murder mystery. One can get a view of how things were in a small 14th century community. The characters are well written and believable and the dialogue is realistic. There are some subplots thrown in, such as Simon trying to cope with the loss of his infant son, to additionally keep the reader's interest. There is none of the high level political infighting that appears in some to the later books in this series. It is just an interesting and enjoyable book.

Note: it would appear that modern writers feel that their stories must have a very melodramatic ending. I would be just as happy if the murderer, upon being found out, were to be taken by the scruff of the neck with, "Right! I arrest you in the name of the Crown" but I guess that is considered too tame by today's standards.

I'm a true Michael Jecks devotee. Have read everything he's written, and love it when familiar characters reappear. Don't quit, Michael. But a suggestion: you may want to put an English - American glossary in the front of the book. I could help (MFA; writing and poetry winner; graphic designer).

I'm a fan of the historical detective fiction series, and this one just didn't measure up to my favorites like Patricia Finney or C.J. Sansome or Peter Tremayne. Why? If I could pin that down, I would be writing historical fiction, rather than a lukewarm review. Perhaps it's the historical details; they seem contrived, added in, rather than an integral part of the story. Perhaps it's the characters, mostly forgettable. With the other writers I mentioned, I eagerly await each new installment, greedily devouring whatever they produce. With this series, I've read one and I'm done.

This is a new series for me and I find it an interesting view into a period of complicated English history. It does seem many readers are fascinated by anything to do with the Knights Templar as well as any Masonic order.

I have a problem with the style which skips between thoughts of different characters without any indication of whose head we are getting into. I understand that we cannot know who the evil person is but it is confusing to me to skip between heroes and their servants without knowing whose thoughts we are sharing.

However, I do want to read more about the heroes and their lives

I enjoyed the author's description of life in the middle ages, all of which made me very happy to have been spared the honor of living at that time. The main character seems a nice protagonist on which to hang a series. The device of using everyone's thoughts bogged the book down a bit. All in all I enjoyed the read and might read another book in the series depending on the story line.

I feel I know the town the people the manor. Everything, just comes alive under Jecks s hand. I look forward to many more really great reads
This is such a great read; so much history embedded in the story that one learns about medieval times effortlessly. However, the characters become old friends and the plot thickens with hidden twists and surprises. I intend to read all Jecks' books. Great read.
