May 1144. Newly wedded, Gareth and Gwen travel across the border into England on a diplomatic mission with Prince Hywel of Wales. Within moments of their arrival, however, the mission goes awry and a murder case drops (literally) at their feet.
Hindered at every turn by a climate of civil war and constantly shifting political alliances, Gareth and Gwen race to solve the murder and expose a plot that threatens not only their lives, but the life of the future king of England himself.
Murder, intrigue, and treachery take center stage in The Fourth Horseman, the third Gareth & Gwen medieval mystery.

Now I confess, I do know quite a bit about the whole Stephen/Maud civil war, and about the people themselves. Hearing a tale woven into that timeline, with just a few of the main participants of the era thrown in here and there was quite fascinating. I always enjoy Sarah's stories of course, and this one was no exception. It was nicely wrapped in layers of fact and fiction.
Technical wise, no jerks or weird stops usually associated with dropping signal or internet connections. No bouncing back to a chapter I've already listened to either. It was a good flow. Ms. Schroeder did a lovely job as always.
