is Keeper of the King's Peace” is busy preparing for the big day in 1321, but, as usual,
something comes along--always in the form or a murder or two--to distract him from his
personal pursuits! Roger, Squire of Throwleigh, has died, which leaves young Herbert
as the squire's heir. Herbert is all of five years old and now is the center of a dangerous
struggle from both inside the manor as well as outside. Now, it is up to Funshill and his
dedicated (and quite brilliant) bailiff Simon Puttock to take over and investigation that,
despite Funshill's marital plans, receives his full attention. This is the seventh in Jecks'
exciting medieval mystery--and well worth the read!
