Masters of the historical mystery, authors Michael Jecks, Susanna Gregory, Bernard Knight, Ian Morson, Philip Gooden, Simon Beaufort, and C.J. Sansom band together as The Medieval Murderers to craft this thrilling tale. In 1067 Greenland, a strange stone falls from the sky. Over the next 600 years, violence and death follow whoever possesses it, including crusading knights, a dying King Henry III, and a troupe of His Majesty King James I’s players.

I liked this book, but it felt to me like a preview - or sample - of other series strung together. So, I found myself listening to the chapters more like short stories. I like historical mysteries and I was intrigued by the mystery of the stone. The writers are all proficient and the presentation was good. But I think this book is right for someone looking more for the short story genre, than a fully developed novel. In fact, some of these writers are new to me and I will be checking out their other work which is more developed.
