    "Another excellent Crowner John!"
    If you could sum up The Witch Hunter in three words, what would they be?

    Superb, fascinating read!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Crowner John is a complex, diverse and totally believable character who has many dimensions to his character including his mistresses!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When Crowner John declines to hold an inquest; he is usually so keen to exert his influence and this change of tack was an interesting diversion from the usual ride roughshod and do his duty!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Crowner John faces unknown, sInister and medieval trials to his authority


    Any additional comments?

    Another rip roaring Crowner John mystery ! Slightly different in its approach but Bernard Knight is always finding new ways to enthrall his readers. The fact that his long term mistress Nesta is facing accusations as a witch is a welcome added dimension.

    Story
    "An historical novel you care about"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witch Hunter to be better than the print version?

    Not sure. I liked the fact that the narration was clear and straight-forward without any gimmicks but would probably have felt the same about this book if i had read it myself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Witch Hunter?

    The rescue of Nesta from the Bush tavern. The scene at the burning tavern was very well realised.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Matthews – was your favourite?

    Crowner John as he came across as a decent man who cared about other people. However he was a character within the time in which the novel was set so had his faults and was far from perfect which made him more likeable.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Witch or wisewoman? Time to make up your mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Historical setting obviously well researched and so gave a lot of interesting information. Characters very believable and even had me feeling sorry for the supporters of King Richard, knowing his brother would soon be on the throne!
