I really enjoyed this medieval mystery. It's the first in a new series featuring Templar Knight Bascot de Marins. Bascot is recovering from wounds suffered in several years of Saracen captivity during the Crusades. He is sent to assist at a Templar monastery near Lincoln, England, where he is asked by the castellan to look into the deaths of four people who are found murdered at the local alehouse.

This story had great characters. I relly enjoyed the historical setting as well and will definitely be reading the other books in this series.

I'd been reading a lot of historical fiction after a long period of only mysteries and thrillers, but had studied the Templars for a class so was fascinated to discover 2 series of mysteries from different authors that combined all these themes/genres. This was the first I've read, but will search out more by her and her compatriot, Michael Jenks. Loved the blending of my faves.

Excellent Templar Knight mystery featuring Templar Bascot du Marins, who is currently staying under the protection of Nicolaa de da Haye, the castellan of the castle and wife of the sheriff. Victims of murder are found in an alehouse. Who are they? And how did they get there? One of the victims is the husband of the alewife. He has not been killed in the same manner as the others.

Has several interesting twists and a surprise ending. Good introduction to a new character along the lines of Brother Cadfael.
