1326. In France, King Edward II’s estranged wife Queen Isabella shames him by refusing to return to England, and humiliates him further by flaunting her adulterous relationship with the king's sworn enemy, traitor Sir Roger Mortimer. When the king hears she has betrothed their son to the daughter of the Count of Hainault, all England fears an invasion of Hainault mercenaries. Meanwhile the Treasurer of England's life is threatened. He has made many enemies in a long political life and Sir Baldwin and Simon must do all they can to find the would-be assassin before he can strike.

Michael Jecks is the bestselling author of the Knights Templar series and a member of The Medieval Murderers.From Publishers Weekly:
The 28th entry in Jecks's Knights Templar series (after 2009's No Law in the Land) takes its time bringing series lead Baldwin de Furnshill into the main plot, but readers won't mind the wait. In 1326, Walter Stapledon, the bishop of Exeter, begins to receive threatening letters that place him in fear for his life. Almost half the book goes by before the bishop asks his old friend de Furnshill, keeper of the king's peace and investigator of suspicious death, for help in identifying the author of the threats. The letters somehow managed to find their way into the bishop's inner sanctum from a number of possible culprits. Political turmoil—in particular, the prospect of a French invasion—also keeps the medieval detective busy. The sprawling cast of characters can be a bit overwhelming, but Jecks once again captures the spirit of the period with another exciting visit to 14th-century England. (June)
