Publisher's Summary

When a corpse turns up at his favorite tavern, Crispin Guest - disgraced knight turned detective - begins an inquiry, but the dead man turns out to be a Templar knight, an order thought to be extinct for 75 years, charged with protecting a certain religious relic which is now missing. Before he can begin to investigate, Crispin is abducted by shadowy men who are said to be minions of the French anti-pope. Further complicating matters are two women: one from court with an enticing proposition, and another from Crispin's past, dredging up long-forgotten emotions he would rather have left behind. And as if all that weren't enough, a cunning young cutpurse by the name of Jack Tucker has insinuated himself into Crispin's already difficult life. The deeper Crispin probes into the murder, the more it looks like the handiwork of an old friend turned adversary. With enemies from all sides, Crispin has his hands full in more than murder in this intriguing prequel to the acclaimed series.

A rivetting story, interwovwn plots with endearing

A rivetting story...well interwoven plots.
certainly the story entralls but, sadly not the narrator...had to grit my teeth on times.I would guess from the sometimes heard accent and strange intonations, the narrator was not a native english speaker....the strangely pronounced words were a distraction on times.and english characters seemed to speak with a forign accent !

Awful Narration

The narration was stilted and robotic, (think speaking clock!) for the majority of this book, apart from when the boy Jack was speaking, which spoilt it for me. The pronunciation was Americanised although the story is set in England and was annoying too. The story was OK but a bit far fetched. On the positive side, the historical facts at the end were interesting. Would I listen to it again? No!
