Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much of the county lies under the iron rule of the Royal Forest laws, with all hunting reserved to the King. The penalty for killing a deer is mutilation or death, and these harsh laws are rigorously upheld by the Kings foresters, notorious for their greed and corruption. In June 1195, a horse gallops into the sleepy village of Sigford, the broken shaft of an arrow protruding from its riders back. The embroidered badge sewn on the dead mans tunic identifies him as a senior officer of the Royal Forest. With the victims purse still full of money, the motive for murder is a mystery. But when a second forest officer is violently attacked, county coroner Sir John de Wolfe begins to uncover evidence of a sinister conspiracy.

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.
