Review: The Assassin in the Greenwood

The Assassin in the Greenwood (Hugh Corbett, #7)The Assassin in the Greenwood by Paul Doherty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another ripping yarn from the pen of Paul Doherty, drawing our eponymous hero into murder, intrigue, and the stuff of legends.

Forced to go to Nottingham by his king, Sir Hugh Corbett, senior clerk in the Royal Chancery and Keeper of the Secret Seal, is charged with uncovering why the legendary Robin Hood, the pardoned outlaw of Sherwood Forest has returned to his criminal ways with a vengeance. Solving a few murders along the way, the outcome of this particular mystery is a surprising one, yet one that has overtones of contemporary socio-political realities.

Another masterful knitting together of historical realities with masterful narrative, this book is a wonderfully engaging read.
