Satan in St Mary’s

Historischer Krimi von Paul Doherty

1284 and Edward I is battling a traitorous movement founded by the late Simon de Montfort, the rebel who lost his life at the Battle of Evesham in 1258. The Pentangle, the movement’s underground society whose members are known to practice the black arts, is thought to be behind the apparent suicide of Lawrence Duket, one of the King’s loyal subjects, in revenge for Duket’s murder of one of their supporters. The King, deeply suspicious of the affair, orders his wily Chancellor, Burnell, to look into the matter.

Der erste Band der Hugh Corbett Krimis. “The plot itself is typical Doherty too…dark and mysterious deeds in the backstreets of medieval London, but all these stories manage to retain an individuality that keeps the reader coming back for more! Highly recommended!” (Rezensent) (29 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 162 Seiten noch günstig?

The Darkening Glass

Historischer Krimi von Paul Doherty

March 1312 and England is divided. Edward II is in conflict with his barons over royal favourite Gaveston, and Queen Isabella is momentously pregnant with the first union of Plantagenet and Capetian blood. Meanwhile, rebel Robert Bruce prowls the Scottish border seeking advancement. Mathilde of Westminster senses a challenge for the throne is imminent. When the great Earls step up their campaign, the King and Queen are forced to flee to a fortified priory in Tynemouth, now vulnerable to the Scottish marauders on land and Bruce’s allies at sea.

Der dritte Band (aber gut separat lesbar) um die Lady von Westminster, einer Bediensteten der Königin Isabella. “The historical accuracy and research that has clearly gone into them is highly impressive; the atmosphere in these novels is dark and brooding; a real sense of menace hangs over the English court, and Mathilde, recounting these tales from her old age, banished by King Edward III has a real and cynical attitude to her life both now and in her younger days.” (Rezensent) (11 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 324 Seiten noch günstig?

The Canterbury Tales By Night Omnibus

Historische Krimis von Paul Doherty

AN ANCIENT EVIL: As the travellers gather at the start of a pilgrimage to Canterbury, they agree to amuse themselves on their journey with evening tales of mystery, terror and murder. So begins the Knight’s tale. A TAPESTRY OF MURDERS: As Chaucer’s pilgrims continue towards Canterbury, they choose the Man of Law to narrate the next tale of fear and sinister dealings. In August 1358, the adulterous Dowager Queen Isabella, the ‚She Wolf of France‘, lies dying of the pestilence in the sombre fortress of Castle Rising, where her ‚loving‘ son has kept her incarcerated. A TOURNAMENT OF MURDERS: While Chaucer’s pilgrims settle for the night, the Franklin narrates a mysterious, bloody tale… In 1356 the Black Prince has won his resounding victory at Poitiers.

Geschichten, die natürlich auf den berühmten Canterbury Tales von Chaucer beruhen. “The stories are genuinely creepy, but entertaining also.” (Rezensent) (7 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 521 Seiten noch günstig?
