Publisher's Summary

Exeter, 1195: At day-long a jousting tournament, a serious altercation takes place between High Peverel and a stranger by the name of Reginald de Charterai. Two days later, Hugh's body is found in a barn. Is de Charterai to blame? The county coroner, Sir John de Wolfe, soon finds plenty of other suspects for the murder of the almost universally hated Hugh Peverel.

Good Listen

The characters are great and both realistic and likeable. The story is a bit obvious and the outcome is hardly a suprise.But the story is excellently read and everything skips along a great pace. If you're looking for an easy listen then I would definitely recommend this

Figure of Hate

I like medieval mysteries and this was very enjoyable, as are all Bernard Knight's Crowner John books.
