Review: Crown in Darkness

Crown in Darkness (Hugh Corbett, #2)Crown in Darkness by Paul Doherty
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another historically set mystery to be confronted by our hero, Hugh Corbett, clerk to the King’s Bench, this novel sees Corbett thrust into international intrigue along with the expected murder and mayhem.

Sent into Scotland after the untimely death of King Alexander III, Corbett has been instructed to find out what happened, and what that might mean for England and her sovereign, Edward I. The only problem is that Corbett, like many of people who find themselves in similar situations, isn’t told the full story, which leads to suspicion and threats against his own life.

A thoroughly engaging yarn, made all the more so because of the use of historical characters and historical settings. Highly recommended.
