Publisher's Summary

Sword of Shame is the second collaboration by five of the UK's finest historical mystery writers. Each brings their own characters to these interlinked tales, which tell the story of a cursed Norman sword. From its first arrival in Britain, with the Norman forces of William the Conqueror, violence and revenge are the cursed sword's constant companions. From an election-rigging scandal in 13th century Venice to the battlefield of Poitiers in 1356, as the Sword of Shame passes from owner to owner, it brings nothing but bad luck and disgrace to all who possess it.

Just couldn't get into it

Not sure why, but I found I just couldn't get into this book. Perhaps it was the narrator, or the vignettes style of the piece, but I found it depressing and not particularly intriguing.

This book isn't boring. Some of the segments are better than others but overall if you enjoy historical mysteries the book is pretty good. You do need to pay attention to keep the segments separated in your mind though.
