Summary

England, 1311. In the dark of the North the devil lies in wait.... 

Paul Doherty's most popular series character returns in the gripping 19th mystery in the Hugh Corbett series.

If you love the historical mysteries of C. J. Sansom, E. M. Powell and Bernard Cornwell you will love this.

1296: King Edward I has led his army to Scotland, determined to take the country under his crown. But the fierce Scots have no intention of submitting to their oppressor and violent and bloody war breaks out. 

1311: Sir Hugh Corbett, Keeper of the Secret Seal, finds himself back in Scotland and is revisited by the horrors he witnessed there 15 years ago. 

An anonymous letter was delivered to the new king. It promised information about a fatal incident that could allow England to finally bow out of the war with the Scots. Tasked with finding out the truth about the murder, Corbett is forced to take risks he would rather avoid and put his faith in the words of strangers. 

But with an unknown traitor lurking in the shadows and danger around every corner, will Corbett be able to unravel the complex web of plots in time?

Made by the Performance

I’ve read almost all of the 19 Hugh Corbett series and this is another good entry. Not great, mind you, but solid. What makes this is the absolutely wonderful performance of the Narrator, Richard Burnip. He’s able to nuance each voice fantastically well without being over the top with any of them. You’re actually able to tell who’s talking just by his voice and they are all great. His performance made the book for me and I’m immediately getting the 20th because Richard narrates that one as well. Doherty’s story is alive with history, as they always are, but it lacks something his other stories have had. It seems a bit perfunctory. It’s still solid, as I said, but what a backdrop it provided for Burnip to read. Absolutely loved it!
