Publisher's Summary

Exeter, 1195. Renovations at the new school in Smythen Street are disrupted by the discovery of a partially mummified corpse - and Sir John de Wolfe, the county coroner is called to investigate. Richard de Revelle, founder of the school, immediately tries to blame Nicholas de Arundell, a young outlawed knight living rough on Dartmoor. As Sir John discovers, Nicholas has good reason to bear a grudge against the unscrupulous de Revelle. But is he really a killer?
With the victim's identity unknown and the motive a mystery, the murder remains unsolved. But then comes a second death - and Sir John is forced to track down the 'noble outlaw' in order to find the answers...

Living History

I love the Croner John stories as they not only provide an enjoyable "Who Dunnit" they give a brilliant insight of life in the 12th Century.
Once again though why is it that never make books of a series available in chronological order or for that matter as a complete series. Out of the dozen or so in this series they have only listed books 4 & 5.

Excellent Story

Well written and well read. This has been a most enjoyable experience. The setting and historical detail are most interesting and the characters well drawn.
I will be buying the other book by this author and narrator.
