City of Fiends EPUB
The thrilling new novel from historical master, Michael Jecks.
Its 1327 and England is in turmoil. King Edward II has been removed from the throne and his son installed in his place. The old mans rule had proved a disaster for the realm and many hope that his removal may mean the return of peace to Englands cities.
Keeper of the Kings Peace Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his friend Bailiff Simon Puttock had been tasked with guarding Edward II, but they have failed in their task and now ride fast to Exeter to inform the sheriff of the old kings escape.
In Exeter, the sheriff has problems of his own. Overnight the body of a young maid has been discovered, lying bloodied and abandoned in a dirty alleyway. The citys gates had been shut against the lawlessness outside, so the perpetrator must still lie within the sanctuary of the town.
When Baldwin de Furnshill arrives, along with Sir Richard de Welles, a companion of old, he is tasked with uncovering the truth behind this gruesome murder. But, in a city where every man hides a secret, his task will be far from easy
