Publisher's Summary

Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales....
The year is 1143, and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks his two best detectives - Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard - with bringing the killer to justice.
And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

Good Story spoilt

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

for me it was time well spent listened while traveling back to Wales from Scotland. Having already read the books it helped make a long car journey fairly pleasant.


What did you like best about this story?

A good original story set in a real place with real events and people. You begin to wonder who is to be murdered next.


What didn’t you like about Laurel Schroeder’s performance?

It was really spoilt by the reader who sounded more Irish than Welsh. the pronunciation of names like Llewelyn was awful and sounded as though it began with an S. It took me quite some time to work out that Cadesh was supposed to be Cadell.


Could you see The Good Knight being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

In the right hands it would be a good movie as long as the scriptwriters remember it is set in Wales and not the USA.

More Irish/Indian than Welsh!

I enjoyed this story even though the narrator's depiction of a Welsh accent was awful. At times very Irish sounding then veering into Indian tones. I would actually have preferred if she'd just done a more English accent at least it wouldn't have been so jarring to begin with.
I don't know if I'll listen to another Gwen & Gareth story as the author seems to really be dragging out their romance and concentrating on the mystery/ detective side of the books.
