Publisher's Summary

They had all joined taking three vows: poverty, chastity, and obedience. For they were monks: warrior monks, dedicated to the protection of pilgrims in the Holy Land - until stories spread by an avaricious king who wanted their wealth for his own destroyed the order. There was one knight, however, who escaped the stake, vowing justice as he watched his innocent brothers die.

Cold-blooded murder has transformed Simon Puttock's official obligation into something horrid, and he will need the able assistance of his friend, Sir Baldwin Furnshill, to draw a criminal out. A former Knight Templar, Sir Baldwin knows much of duty and servitude and of evil freely indulged in the name of godliness or greed. Now, justice must be served, even if their search exposes extortion, foul corruption, rule by fear, and killers willing, even eager, to shed more blood.

    "Entertaining......"

    A good story told at a good pace. Not one of the best from the series and could have been a little more 'atmospheric'. But Jecks researches his subject matter well and his characters are believable and real. Maybe more realism if good does not always win over bad as was more often the case in times past (and even today) but then I guess there would be no 'satisfactory' conclusion.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, good story and colourful characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am a big Michael Jecks fan and Sir Baldwin and Simon Puttock are my favourite historical crime solvers


    What does Michael Tudor Barnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Although it sounds odd a greater understanding of the class system of the time with the accents and speech patterns of the characters


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    While the country recovers from war and famine two men still look out for those who are murdered
