Crispin is back in the second book in this Medieval mystery series. This time he has a young man, Jack, who has sort of made Crispin take him under his wing. Crispin, known as the tracker, has a woman show up at his boarding room who is very slow, mentally. She tells Crispin that there is a dead man at her room and she must have killed him even if she does not remember doing so. The man is a French courier, who is bringing the CROWN OF THORNS to the king of England. Yes, that crown of thorns. It seems to be Crispin’s way back to being a knight and out of his situation. All he wants, it can be his again if he can figure out the who, what and where of everything. The trouble is that it keeps slipping away and things are not what they appear to be. The right move is wrong and seems to escape his usual observational skills.
This is so much better than the first book that I can not wait until I start the next book next week.
