So refreshing to meet an unapologetically flawed character. Crowner John, the man in black, cheats on his wife and his mistress but defends the right of the accused criminal to fair treatment. He shouts, he stomps, he hates his in-laws. You've got to love it. I've been reading a lot of historical mysteries and this may be my new favorite. The author easily weaves medieval history, culture and vocabulary into the story. The settings are gritty and real. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 only because I didn't like the ending; I felt the author took the easy way out. That said, I will be visiting Crowner John again soon.

I really enjoyed this book it’s not often I find a book that has been set in my own home town. The authors research is amazing, and has helped me learn loads!
The story was brilliant and with many twists and turns.
But one thing still remains - who DID kill the unfortunate Mr Knapman?
What disappointed you about The Tinner's Corpse?
same old plot
Would you ever listen to anything by Bernard Knight again?
might do , might not
How did the narrator detract from the book?
did the best of a bad job
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
like most of the other crowner john books but not this one
