Publisher's Summary

England, 1311. In the dark of the North the devil lies in wait.... 

Paul Doherty's most popular series character returns in the gripping 19th mystery in the Hugh Corbett series.

If you love the historical mysteries of C. J. Sansom, E. M. Powell and Bernard Cornwell you will love this.

1296: King Edward I has led his army to Scotland, determined to take the country under his crown. But the fierce Scots have no intention of submitting to their oppressor and violent and bloody war breaks out. 

1311: Sir Hugh Corbett, Keeper of the Secret Seal, finds himself back in Scotland and is revisited by the horrors he witnessed there 15 years ago. 

An anonymous letter was delivered to the new king. It promised information about a fatal incident that could allow England to finally bow out of the war with the Scots. Tasked with finding out the truth about the murder, Corbett is forced to take risks he would rather avoid and put his faith in the words of strangers. 

But with an unknown traitor lurking in the shadows and danger around every corner, will Corbett be able to unravel the complex web of plots in time?

Made by the Performance

I’ve read almost all of the 19 Hugh Corbett series and this is another good entry. Not great, mind you, but solid. What makes this is the absolutely wonderful performance of the Narrator, Richard Burnip. He’s able to nuance each voice fantastically well without being over the top with any of them. You’re actually able to tell who’s talking just by his voice and they are all great. His performance made the book for me and I’m immediately getting the 20th because Richard narrates that one as well. Doherty’s story is alive with history, as they always are, but it lacks something his other stories have had. It seems a bit perfunctory. It’s still solid, as I said, but what a backdrop it provided for Burnip to read. Absolutely loved it!

Weaving fact and fiction

Paul Dohery is one of the best authors at weaving fact with fiction. He does it so well, that I end up doing my own research to see just what is fact and what isn't. I love history (I always have) and enjoy this weaving of stories. I do find myself laughing at some of the things we used to think about God and the Devil etc. It shows really how simple we were. I don't mean that in any derogatory sense, but rather that we led such simple lives. Though they probably weren't simple to the people living in those times. I suspect they were rather hard and I'm glad I can read about them through people like Paul Doherty. This story finds Sir Hugh, Ranulf and Chanson heading north to Alnwick Castle and Tynemouth Priory in search of the missing Scottish Crown.
