Bernard Knight's The Manor of Death

The Manor of Death (Crowner John Mystery #12)The Manor of Death by Bernard Knight
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very entertaining but very slow. I didn't mind the slow read in some respects at it is a fascinating read and the author conveys 12 century England so very well. The tale (once again) involves boats and sailors, but has an interesting undercurrent from piracy. John de Wolfe is an absolute saint, I would have murdered his wife many times over. I love the tale being centered on Exeter and you can certainly recognise the cathedral and grounds and many of the road names rang a bell.
