One of my favorites - set in the medival times and the Crusades. Great character development - great plot with twists and turns to keep you on your toes. GREAT.

I was plesently surprised to find that this was NOT just another cookie cutter book by James Patterson and one of his numerous co-writers. Although not a "great" book, it is a well written story and an easy read.

Taking place in the eleventh century with the dark side of the Crusades as background Hugh de Luc, the Jester, fights for such timely issues of rightness, morality, justice, freedom, and, of course, love. Above all, it is a book of hope. The phrase "That may be, but it will not always be" repeated throughout the story gives hope to what seems impossible then and now.

Great book about treasure from the Crusades. Time setting goes back and forth between present day France and 1096 France.

Historical fiction. A story about medieval France and the era of the Crusades with a different point of view. I really liked it.

Very different for Patterson, but still riveting in a historical sort of way.
