When a merchant in Exeter hears an intruder in his home one night, his first thought is to conceal his adulterous lover. But then he witnesses a sinister figure stooping over the bed of his only child, a figure who seems to vanish into thin air.Two years on and the identity of the intruder has become common knowledge: the idiot of the city who lost his own children many years ago, and who seems doomed to wander the town searching for them. But when a boy then disappears, suspicion immediately falls on him.The local constable is determined to solve the mystery, as his own son disappeared some years ago and he always suspected the fool. Sir Baldwin is asked to follow a lead to the manor of Bishop's Clyst to try and find out what has happened. While he is there a body is found under the stone bridge - the body of a boy, but not the one who recently went missing...

Now, as he entered the Dean’s hall and saw the bailiff standing cupping a goblet of wine in his hand at the window, Baldwin felt for the first time very little joy.

Michael Jecks ouple of weeks ago, Baldwin had been sad to see his companion leaving for his new home, but that sadness was caused by the knowledge that he wouldn’t be seeing Simon again for some while. Now, seeing Simon here in the Dean’s house, he knew full well that there must be a good reason for the bailiff’s appearance

The Butcher of St. Peters takes place within Jecks’ fictional chronology well after the last novel I read, Belladonna at Belstone. The latter gave an interesting perspective on life within a convent while the former builds on a historical rivalry/conflict between the wandering priors and priories and clerics and cathedral. This rivalry was fascinating to me as I was unaware as this dispute over burial rites. He is now the Keeper of the King's Peace for the area.

Talk about The Butcher of St Peter's (Knights Templar)

I really like this series. I think it is the best of the many mystery series set in the Middle Ages. The main characters are likable and interesting, the puzzles well plotted, and the history is accurate. This series really portrays the era as it was - desperate, brutal, dangerous and corrupt. Just living through the day was a triumph when a simple cut could kill in a time before antibiotics.

Start with the first one and read these books. You'll like them. Really!

"Well our friend Baldwin is recovering in Exeter from his last adventure. Not only are his physical wounds healing, but some emotional ones as well. His presence in Exeter is convenient for the coroner when a local official is murdered in his own home. Sir Baldwin's respite is interupted for yet another investigation.

While investigating the law officer's death, another body is found could it be that these two deaths are related? Will there be more?

There is great story telling that goes into this mystery. I'm appreciative of Jeck's efforts to connect his fictional tales to actual events that occured and this one is no exception. Jealousy and pride are difficult emotions for clerics as well as seculars and some people have long memories. Ambition without regard for the law is another human weakness as is desperation. All of these human flaws are woven into this story to create an image of 14th century life that is all too familar to our present lives."

Overall, I enjoyed "the Butcher of St. Peter's although somewhat less than some of Jeck's earlier works.

In general, I had two problems. The large number of characters in the story and the way the plot jumps from scene to scene required frequent reference to the list of characters at the front of the book, interrupting the flow of the novel.

I also found the explanation for one of the murders to be less than convincing and thought that the premise somewhat stretched the imagination of the reader.

One hopeful sign - there might be a new series of books utilizing the characters of the coroner and physician who appear to be an interesting duo.

The protagonists are as usual wonderful, but so many of the others are brought alive and I saw them as people I would enjoy knowing????

I enjoyed the characters and hope to see some again, the physician was an interesting character. The point counterpoint of the characters is always good.
Gigafish
There are generally multiple characters to keep track of in Michael Jecks books. He does an outstanding job with character building and suspense. This book kept me interested all the way through.
