0 0 5 Author: Michael Jecks. Sir Gilbert's horse and money are gone, but the coroner is keen to close the matter and declare that Dyne killed the knight and was then slain as an outlaw.

His rapacity has divided the nation, and civil war looms. In Tiverton, rape and murder have unsettled the town, which is preparing for the feast of St. Giles; Philip Dyne has confessed and claimed sanctuary in St. Peter's church. Sir Baldwin Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, and Bailiff Simon Puttock, arrive at Lord Hugh de Courtenay's castle at Tiverton for the feast.

The story in itself is solid, well-paced and the characters are of a nice diversity representing of all layers of the populace. The series has its ups and downs, and this one is pretty much bang in the middle, a very good read. Wonderful plot with lots of twists and fabulous and likeable characters. The Traitor of St Giles is a fantastic read with lots of unexpected turns. I particularly love the loyal dogs, Uther and Aylmer. As a fan of the series I was also quite taken by the end!

Michael Jecks does an excellent job of populating the book with real characters - some deeply unpleasant, it must be said, but others whose fates, good or bad, are as much a part of the plot as the mystery.

Baldwin predominates in this one. Story still as well constructed as ever. More Medievel history with which Ellis Peters hooked me. Never considered myself
Anglephile but seem to be approaching. Jecks keeps his standards high. the Academic portion is somewhat a challenge at times, but worth it.

As always. Good character development keeps me coming back. These are always intriguing mysteries, planted firmly in the soil of history. Great fun! Thanks!

Of course I really like medieval mysteries that are authentic to the period, and the author puts me in that time and place.

Fun read, interesting and he brings historical background into play giving a sense of realism. Difficult books to put down

Michael needs to write faster so his audience can enjoy more of his good work.

Love how Michael necks writes with such complexity that one does not solve the mystery until the author allows you to!

I have read a dozen or so Michael Jecks Knights Templar books, and, while they are somewhat overwritten, they are very enjoyable. He obviously puts in a lot of research into the period.
Very enjoyable
