While every single Patterson book I've read has been transparent -- one knows the plot twist from nearly the very beginning -- this book kept my attention because I happen to love medieval history. Set in the 11th century, it covers the horrors of the crusades, despotic noblemen, and an unlikely hero in the guise of a innkeeper-turned-jester. It's a quick read, and unlike any Patterson I've read, which makes me think his co-writer Andrew Gross wrote the bulk of it.

Not bad!
