A good mystery, but I had trouble getting into it at the beginning, most likely because it's the first of its kind I've read.

I got this book on a whim and was totally pleased with the book. In fact after reading this book I have been tracking down the others in the series and finding my self enthralled with the politics of the church and state in this time period of British history. You find yourself caring about the main characters and wanting to know how they progress in their lives.

a fun read, now one of my favorites.
owen archer saves the lives of a jongleur-french for english traveling minstrel, and his leman, french for mistress, and to prove that no good turn goes unpunished, they try to kill him but only cause the loss of sight in one eye. so what does a capt of archers do when he can no longer be an archer in the 1600's?
you will have to read this book to find out.
I would suggest that this be read before going on to others as it sets up the main characters.
great for learning about the period with out all the olde english words.
