Fear in the Forest (Crowner John Mysteries)

Fear in the Forest (Crowner John Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

C12th Devon. Much of the country lies under the iron rule of the Royal Forest laws, with all hunting reserved to the King. The penalty for killing a deer on the King's land is mutilation or death. These harsh laws are rigorously upheld by the King's foresters, notorious for their greed and corruption.

June 1195. A tall, brown mare gallops into the sleepy village of Sigford, its rider dragged by the stirrup, the broken shaft of an arrow protruding from his back. The embroidered badge on the dead man's tunic identifies him as a senior officer of the Royal Forest. But, with plenty of money still in the victim's purse, the motive is a mystery.

When a second forest officer is violently attacked, Sir John de Wolfe begins to uncover evidence of a sinister conspiracy. And why is his unscrupulous brother-in-law, the sheriff Sir Richard de Revelle, taking such an interest in the case?

Synopsis:

In 12th-century Devon, a mare gallops into a sleepy village, its rider dragged by the stirrup, the broken shaft of an arrow protruding from his back. When a second forest officer is violently attacked, Sir John de Wolfe begins to uncover evidence of a sinister conspiracy.

Synopsis:

Bernard Knight's seventh gripping medieval mystery featuring Crowner John is a suspenseful tale of murder, conspiracy, and greed in twelfth-century England. A fascinating thriller infused with vivid historical details, Fear in the Forest immerses readers in Devon, where a series of inexplicable murders are baffling the county. When one of the King's Royal officers--a notoriously corrupt bunch--turns up dead and another is brutally attacked for no apparent reason, Devon's first coroner, Crowner John, begins to uncover evidence suggesting a sinister conspiracy, and a compelling mystery unfolds.
