"For eight long years, Templar Bascot de Marins was a prisoner of the Saracens in the Holy Land. Upon his return to England, he was sent to Lincoln castle to recover from wounds both physical and spiritual and became a valued member of Lady Nicolaa de la Haye's retinue. She is in great need of Bascot's talent for solving mysteries... Convinced he is of noble blood, Aubrey Tercel uses his position as a member in Lady Nicolaa's sister's court to come to Lincoln to find his birth mother. While he's in town, his good looks and charm are noticed by Clarice Adgate, a furrier's much younger wife. When Tercel's body is found on the castle ramparts, it'd be easy to call his death an act of revenge by the jealous husband, but Templar Bascot de Marins is convinced that the furrier and his wife are mere distractions from the true killer. After another servant of the court is brutally attacked, Bascot, with the help of his former protégé Gianni, must solve the case quickly before the murder claims another life..."--P. [4] of cover.

While this was a good book I found this mystery a little dramatic for my taste.
Not the best in the series but still a solid addition to it.
