The Noble Outlaw, Paperback Book

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.
