Read in April, 2010

Much improved from the 1st entry in this series, when everything seemed to come a little too easily to Hugh de Singleton. Now the author has him installed as bailiff to the local lord, he can just get on with the job. Hugh is a charismatic protagonist and his story is well told. One thing I wish Starr would do less often is to have Hugh point out where he has interpreted events wrong. While Hugh is telling his story in retrospect, the reader is hearing it for the first time and these asides may as well say "THIS IS A CLUE. PAY ATTENTION."
