Publisher's Summary

In 14th century London, Crispin Guest is a disgraced knight convicted of treason and stripped of his land, title and his honor. He has become known as the “Tracker”- a man who can find anything, can solve any puzzle and, with the help of his apprentice, Jack Tucker, an orphaned street urchin with a thief’s touch - will do so for a price. But this time, even Crispin is wary of taking on his most recent client. Jacob of Provencal is a Jewish physician at the King’s court, even though all Jews were expelled from England nearly a century before. Jacob wants Crispin to find stolen parchments that might be behind the recent, ongoing, gruesome murders of young boys - parchments that someone might have used to bring forth a demon which now stalks the streets and alleys of London.

Maudlin Crispin

Where does The Demon's Parchment rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Middling fair. Adore Michael Page as a narrator, but Crispin was wallowing in self pity and drinking way way too much.

Would you recommend The Demon's Parchment to your friends? Why or why not?

Would recommend other Crispin books.

Which character – as performed by Michael Page – was your favorite?

Love sweet Jack and as much as I am complaining about Crispin -- he is my favorite. A flawed hero.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Would not make a film of this book.

This series is addicting!

This series just keeps getting better. I didn't realize that the Edict of Expulsion issued in 1290 banished Jews from England over usury. Jews could only stay if they converted to Christianity , but many still worshipped in private. Oliver Cromwell overturned the Edict in 1657.

This time the hunt is on for missing parchments written in Hebrew. Young boys are being murdered and mutilated, possibly by a monster who was created using the missing parchments.

I love this series. As usual, Michael Page does a fine job narrating.
