Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Outlaws of Ennor

Returning from their pilgrimage in Spain, Sir Baldwin Furnshill and his friend Bailiff Simon Puttock become separated during a pirate attack that shipwrecked them on the bleak, scattered islands of The Scillies (off the South West British coast) in 1323. When "rescued" by the master of the islands, Ranulph de Blancminster, Simon is drawn into the investigation of the death of the local tax collector. The sword of his friend, Sir Baldwin, is found near the body. So he must find his friend, search for a murderer and dodge between the bitter rivalry of the lord of the isles and the church.
