Crowner's Quest: Bernard Knight's Third Medieval Murder Mystery|
Christmas Eve, 1194. Sir John de Wolfe gratefully escapes a party, being given by his wife Matilda, to examine the body of a canon who has been found hanged. Suicide is suspected, but it is soon apparent that there is more to this case than meets the eye. As always, John's investigations are hampered by his brother-in-law, the sheriff Sir Richard de Revelle. But when a local lord is killed, John begins to suspect that the cases are linked and Sir Richard's reasons for delaying the investigation may be more serious than the usual petty vengeance. Desperately trying to deflect Sir Richard's plots against him, John is soon at loggerheads with Matilda, and even his mistress Nesta. And as he digs deeper, he uncovers a deadly conspiracy that could cost him far more than the women in his life.
