(Review from the author)
it was amazing
bookshelves: my-own

My twenty first book in the series, and this was a delight for me. I enjoyed the setting, especially since it involved poring over some very old maps, and I loved the characters. Especially the Coroner, Sir Richard de Welles, who is based upon James Robertson Justice and Brian Blessed. I actually laughed as I wrote him, he was such a delight to conceive and flesh out. And then, when it was all done, this was shortlisted for the Theakstone's prize for the best crime novel of the year. I was pipped at the post, but the book has always appealed, and to be voted as one of the six best novels of the year is pretty good!

Eileen Oh yes, I can easily see Brian Blessed in the coroner!
