       Additional Information  
      Murder, treason, Satanism, a plot that cuts like a sword edge. Meet the Middle Ages' most hard-boiled detective: Sir Thomas Clave, the Black Knight.

    Tired of historical mystery novels that sanitize and sugar-coat the past? Fed up with plots and detectives from ancient Rome to the Civil War that are totally at variance with the true facts of history and the real culture and attitudes of their time? Bored to tears with so-called mysteries that try to rewrite history and degenerate into thinly disguised modern-day political correctness? Then get ready to meet the Middle Ages' most hard-boiled detective: Sir Thomas Clave, the Black Knight! The year is 1422. The king of England is dead and the new king is a baby. The land is ruled by a council of quarreling nobles. A terrible secret conspiracy of murder, treason, and devil worship threatens the very foundations of the Church and the realm. Murdering monks, poisoning prioresses, scheming royal uncles, back street assassins, a mad alchemist, a beautiful and dangerous woman...the Black Knight cuts his way through them all to get at the truth. This one is a must read!
