The Noble Outlaw Paperback
Part of the Crowner John Mystery series
Exeter, 1195. Renovations at the new school in Smythen Street are disrupted by the shocking discovery of a partially mummified corpse hidden in the rafters - and Sir John de Wolfe, the county coroner is called to investigate.
Richard de Revelle, Sir John's brother-in-law and founder of the school, immediately tries to blame Nicholas de Arundell, a young outlawed knight living rough on Dartmoor.
As Sir John discovers, Nicholas has good reason to bear a grudge against the unscrupulous de Revelle.
But is he really a killer? With the victim's identity unknown and the motive a mystery, the murder remains unsolved.
But then comes news of a second violent death - and Sir John is forced to track down the 'noble outlaw' in order to find the answers.
