Chivalry is not dead; it comes back each year with a rousing “War” held for fun – and in costume. For one brief shining weekend, ordinary folks like police detective Peter Brichter recreate the Middle Ages at a rural campground: jousting, swigging ale, and “slaying” rival knights with glee. But a real-life killer has joined the throng – and with dagger sharp and malice cruel he’s come to turn fantasy into deadly serious business.
I loved this book. It grabbed me from the first and never let go. A group of people from all around the country get together for one weekend dressed in medieval costumes, complete with weaponry, for feasting, fighting and fun. There are a total of five books in the series. I’m looking forward to the next book The Unforgiving Minutes.
This is 7/100 mystery authors.
I’m currently reading #3 The Soul Weaver by Carol Berg.
