No Law in the Land (Knights Templar Mysteries 27)

Country or family… which will Sir Baldwin and Simon choose?

When Simon’s daughter becomes embroiled in the plans of a group of outlaws, he and Sir Baldwin take matters into their own hands in the thrilling twenty-seventh instalment of Michael Jecks’ Knights Templar mysteries. Perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin and Bernard Cornwell.

‘Boasts an exciting, twisting plot’ – Publishers Weekly

King Edward II is furious when he learns that his wife Queen Isabella has defied him by remaining in France with their son. As the unfortunate messengers of this news, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his friend, Bailiff Simon Puttock, are dismissed from court.

Returning home to Devon, they are shocked to discover that outlaws now hold sway in the land. When two clerics are found murdered, Baldwin and Simon must investigate. But the culprit is a friend of Dispenser and the King, and in taking the matter further they could be accused of treason. So they decide to leave the affair to others. Until, that is, Simon’s own daughter comes under threat, and all hell is let loose…
