I think the idea to have bunch of authors work together for a thriller is a good one. The trouble is, they have to work in a coordinated way. This novel starts very nicely, but a lot of the plots and figures that seem to be important at the very beginning were destroyed unexpected in the middle (e.g., the FBI agent) and the ending seems just too artificial.
The mixture of history and criminal investigation is superb. The writing is very vivid and one can almost smell and touch the life of medieval England. The main figures are not quite likable, but very real. The author is very skillful presenting a multi-layered, internally conflicting personality of the main characters.
The murder plot is actually quite simple, but the twists with the main characters personal feeling and changes of attitude are the main factors attract me from listening it.
