"This superb series isn’t kidding when it describes itself as medieval noir.... The writing is wonderful and the history vividly presented. Not to be missed by fans of real historical mysteries."
--RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)
"Westerson skillfully lulls her sleuth and the reader into a sense of 'I know what is going on,' then zings them with the truth. Absolutely first-class; highly recommended."
"A solid plot and cast of characters, a feel for the story’s place and time (fourteenth-century England), and an appealing noirish air. A welcome addition to the medieval-mystery landscape."
"Westerson's third 14th-century historical featuring disgraced knight Crispin Guest ... is the best yet."
"Information on 14th-century anti-Semitism and homosexuality are highlights of Crispin’s third adventure, based on a real 15th-century crime spree."
