    1. This was the first book where I had to get into the politics of the day from the perspective of London It was hard to move my characters from their homes in Devon, but it was important to show how the King and his adviser, Hugh Despenser, were ruling the nation Despenser was, in effect, running the country in the King s name, and abusing it as though he was in charge of a massive protection racket It was thoroughly enjoyable to write I was able to take the example of a poor woman in the service [...]

    2. book 23Now our duo are aging, both have families, and much to lose if they anger the wrong man Both, however, are far from London and the mess that is the monarchy of the time King Edward II, his lover the Despenser, his wife Isabella We are treated to a tale which puts Isabella in a favourable light, of course this may be author s bias, but the Church s stand on sodomy is such that the King has put his soul in jeopardy, he is happy to do the bidding of his lover The lover is only concerned with [...]

    3. This is the twenty third book in Jecks series of medieval mysteries which makes it the largest I have read Set in the in the early fourteenth century, they are particularly faithful to history which makes them all the exciting This time the protagonists, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill, an ex Templar and Keeper of the King s Peace in Devon and his longtime friend Simon Puttock, Bailiff to the Abbot of Tavistock, are deep in the intrigue of the Court of King Edward II and his sinister advisor and lover [...]

    4. Wow oh wow, I can not recommend Michael Jecks enough, if you love historical crime books you will love his.This one involved King Edward II and his lover Hugh Le Despenser, Baldwin and Simon are charged with finding the killer of a Lady in waiting of the Queen and a mystery man found behind the throne in the Palace in London.They find themselves in a dangerous world far from home and have to put their fear of death aside to find the truth.Read it.

    5. Decent enough mystery.There are a number of instances of less than historical accuracy and the sexual proclivities of King Edward II is the main one Whether or not the man was gay is much debated and Jecks comes down squarely on the side of yes Some may not want to read this series if they disagree with this decision as much of this case rests on this decision.

    6. new series for me and I enjoyed itok a little bit to get into it but I am intrigued enough to read the earlier ones in the series.

    7. ExcellentI enjoy all sir Baldwin novels but especially like the historical insight given especially the view of Edward II Fascinating.
