Sir Baldwin Furnshill, once a Knight Templar, has doubts about the boy's guilt. He enlists his friend Simon Puttock, bailiff of Lydford Castle, in the hunt for a murderer. But what they seek lies somewhere on the darker side of Wefford, beneath layers of jealousy, suspicion, and hatred - and the buried truth could prove fatal to anyone who disturbs it.

Too much snow
Oh dear... It really takes something for me to write a negative comment about a book. This is the first book by this author that I have listened to and it was very dull. I anticipated something along the lines of Ellis Peters with great characters, charm, humour, some peril and historical accuracy. Instead I found myself wondering when the story was going to start... There was a murder, a lot of trudging backwards and forwards to people's houses in the snow and people getting cold. I couldn't develop empathy or interest with any of the characters and while I might try another if I could pick it up for 10p in a jumble sale I will not be spending any more on an audio version of a book in this series...

Wonderful characters and cracking story twists and turns. Totally immersed in medieval England Simon and Baldwin now feel like old friends

Wonderful to hear Baldwin and co come to life.
I have been a Michael Jecks fan for many years. It was a pleasure to listen to this book, especially as I had not read this one.
