|Plot Summary of The Jester|
|"This is a far cry from the work we usually associate with James Patterson. Written with Andrew Goss it is an historical novel set in medieval France. Hugh de Luc is an innkeeper in a small town. He is a serf and what he wants more than anything else is his freedom. He joins the army and heads on a crusade to the Holy Land to gain it. He is sickened by the killing and horror he sees and deserts after the liberation of Antioch. On his return to his village he discovers that his wife has been abducted, his inn razed to the ground and his infant son murdered. There follows a quest of immense proportions as Hugh vows to find and rescue his wife, Sophie. Although a mite unbelievable the story is enjoyable and up to the standard we have come to expect from Patterson. "
