This is the eleventh book in Edward Marston's Domesday Mystery series. Coincidentally, the landowners, de Fontenel and Mauger, are wooing Adelaide, a beautiful and wealthy widow. Early in the story, the elephan This is the eleventh book in Edward Marston's Domesday Mystery series. My loyalty lies, perhaps unfairly, with his other Restoration series.

Book 11 of 11 in the Domesday Series. It is the juiciest piece of gossip the citizens of Norwich have heard for a long time. The two golden elephants that robber baron Richard de Fontenel was using to lure the beautiful Adelaide into marriage have been stolen. Also missing is de Fontenel's steward Hermer. It has taken a long time to track down a copy of Elephants of Norwich, but it was worthwhile. The eleventh volume in an enjoyable and eminently readable series about crime solving after the Norman Conquest in England, this one has an fast paced plot involving stolen treasure as well as murder, characters that are complex enough to create doubt, and a good sense of what the English countryside must have been like.

I'm a history buff and a mystery addict, so this entire series, I read all 11, has been great for me. I didn't know much about this period, so the books have been educational as well as fun. Discovering "who-dun-it" in the absence of the omnipresent forensics of today's mystery is not only different, but fun. This series does not compare unfavorably with the Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael series. Devotees of Brother Cadfael will enjoy the Domesday books of Marston.

I chose this rating because the book was interesting and the characters well know and liked by me . Mars ton is an excellent writer of the historical crime genre, and his historical details are truthful His Railway Mysteries are particularly good , so i gave this a4 star because it does not quite match up . the book has its humorous side- the description of an elephant to those who have never seen one and thier reaction is good. The description of the Commissioners of the Domesday book and their power, the resentment of the Saxons, and the different ideas of marriage add a lot to the books appeal . Lots of interplay between the 2 very different commissioners, Br. Aethelstone e and good portrayal of the women as well in medieval times!

These books are never long enough. One wants more. The story itself is quite good. Some of the characters are a bit one dimensional. One wants to know a bit more about Ralph other than his role as a commissioner -- he's never in Hampshire, who runs things for him there? Brothers, sisters? nephews? If his wife gets pregnant, how would he deal with it given the loss of his first wife in childbirth? Yet I'm waiting for the next in this series to come out.

Excellent finale to the series. I only wish he’d wrote a few more books in this series so we could see how some things turned out.

The issue was I was not satisfied with what was advertised and sent. I sent my email to Motor City Books on Sun. and the vendor replied on Mon. resolving the issue. One could not only ask for a more timely reply but also one which satisfied my complaints. On a scale of 1-5 stars, I give the vendor at least a 6, perhaps an 8.
This book is typical Marston in some ways. Yet, it contains some twists and turns that are not predictable, which makes it better than some of his other books. The introduction of new characters is a welcome development and let's hope they stick around. This is one of the better books in the Domesday series making the reader think how it must have been to be a conquered Saxon and a conquering Norman.
