The manner of the young man's death is a matter of some dispute - but, as Sir John soon discovers, it was no accident. The victim did not drown, as the manor reeve alleges, but was strangled. In the ensuing investigation, Sir John is frustrated by what appears to be a conspiracy of silence among the seamen and townsfolk. Just what is the local population trying to hide?
As Crowner John is to learn, there are many inhabitants of Axmouth who will go to any lengths to ensure the shocking truth remains hidden...

The Crowner John mysteries are the best if you like 12the and Early 13th Century Medievel England. They are really great. You get a real feel for life in those time and the books are filled with a real depth of character and period detail. The plots are drawn from the archives of Exeter so there is a great deal of versimilitude about them. Paul Matthews is a great reader who lends uniqueness to every character.
Great period detail, an interesting mystery, and more details about the life of Sir John. What more can you ask for?
