The 14th gripping murder mystery to feature 12th century coroner, Crowner John

With the city of Exeter ravaged by an outbreak of the "yellow plague," Sir John de Wolfe, the county coroner, must divide his time between visiting his sick brother, William, who has been struck down by the disease, and dealing with a series of brutal murders that appears to be linked to a revival of heresy in the city. When some of the cathedral canons begin a crusade against this danger to the Church, Sir John finds himself accused of being too sympathetic to the heretics, bringing him into conflict with the ecclesiastic authorities. As the situation worsens, the coroner must seek sanctuary in order to save his skin. Can he survive long enough to unmask the real killer?

About the Author:

Bernard Knight is the author of the Crown John Mysteries series and is a member of The Medieval Murderers.

From Publishers Weekly:

Devon coroner John de Wolfe confronts the twin specters of contagion and religious violence in Knight's workmanlike 14th Crowner John mystery (after 2009's Crowner Royal). In late 1196, de Wolfe attempts to solve several grisly killings, starting with a man dumped in an isolated area outside the Exeter city wall who had his throat cut and his tongue ripped out, but the plague also stalking the region's inhabitants distracts him from his investigation. Church authorities increase the pressure after the murder victims prove to be heretics who opposed papal authority. A wealth of historical detail and a compelling protagonist who's believably a man of his age will be enough to satisfy some readers, but others may be disappointed by a plot with little suspense and few surprises.
