Intricate and fun medieval Scots mystery This story steps beyond the usual and provides a useful perspective on how perilously unstable a landless knight's life was. Our hero needs his wit and wits to overcome all odds and come safe to port, and he does. The author is at his best when in the thick...

A reasonable start to a series: the characters are reasonably likeable, the description is pretty good and the story is readable though I did think the ending was rather sudden and unsatisfying. It rather felt like the author ran out of word count and just stopped without really tying up the loos...

Fun mystery Interesting idea to put a cloak and dagger novel in a medieval setting. I'm sure things like this happened but haven't seen too many novelists use it in their stories from this era. Author does a good job of developing the story and keeping you interested. And, of course, room is left...

I don't know if it's something with conversion to Kindle, or if this was just poorly written and/or edited in other editions as well. There are a number of typos, and many places where a lack of commas made it hard to understand what the author was saying. I had no problem with the Scots words, h...

The story line written as though in the 1400's takes place in Scotland. The main character is a knight "looking " for a "job" as a knight, however, is hired by a "nobleman" to find an individual who allegedly has taken the "nobleman's" wife. Needless to say he is duped and what takes place puts h...
