Troubled Bones: A Crispin Guest Medieval Noir, Book 4

After an ill-considered action one night in London, disgraced knight Crispin Guest heeds the summons of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who has specifically requested Guest’s presence.

Publisher's Summary

After an ill-considered action one night in London, disgraced knight Crispin Guest heeds the summons of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who has specifically requested Guest’s presence. The archbishop has received letters threatening violence against the bones of saint and martyr Thomas à Beckett, the greatest treasure on display in the cathedral in Canterbury. Guest, who has been living by his wits since being stripped of his honor, his title, and his lands, has earned a reputation for solving seemingly impossible puzzles and finding lost objects. Known to many as “the Tracker,” Guest is now charged with protecting the relics of the saint and discovering whoever is out to destroy them.

With his young apprentice, Jack Tucker, in tow, Guest arrives in Canterbury and is immediately accosted by an old acquaintance from court - one Geoffrey Chaucer - surrounded by a group of pilgrims lately come from London. Trapped among the travelers (who were, quite possibly, the model for Chaucer’s famous story cycle, The Canterbury Tales), and tripped up by a series of murders in the cathedral, Crispin has to uncover a hidden heretic and a killer before his friend Chaucer, carefully framed for the murders, is hanged for someone else’s crimes.

    "Great medieval noir series"

    In this fourth book in the series, Crispin Guest and his apprentice, Jack Tucker, travel to Canterbury at the request of the Archbishop. This time the bones of Thomas a Beckett go missing, people start dropping like flies, and The Tracker (aka Crispin Guest) is on the hunt. But who is friend and who is foe? Another entertaining mystery in this medieval noir series set in the 1380s.

    Story
    "Absolutely Delightful Tale"

    Chaucer, Murder & Cathedrals all go to make this yet another thrilling
    listen. You are gripped from beginning to end with lots of plot happenings & quirky storyline in this thriller.

    So much happens throughout this book that I can not pin point one particular point where it stands out, it is all outstanding. This is the my second purchase by this writer & I intend to buy all the rest of the books. I cannot wait. I like these so much, that it is known for me to have switch straight back to beginning & listen all over again as soon as it has finished.

    The narrator is perfect, the most excellent to tell these types of Medieval thrillers. His voice captures each & every character in the book, so it is more or less like a full cast production.
