|Plot Summary of The Last Templar|
|"In 1316, the new baliff of Lydford Castle Simon Puttock is called to investigate a burned-out cottage where a body was found. Sir Bladwin Furnshill, a knight recently returned from abroad, persuades Simon that it was no accident. The victim was killed before the fire started. As Simon and the quiet but intelligent Sir Baldwin look for more evidence, word comes of another murder - a clergyman who was undoubtably burned alive. The baliff and the knight start to look for a connection to the two killings since they are rare in this quiet and remote part of Devon.
Michael Jecks paints a portrait of rural fourteenth-century Devon."
Alan J. Bishop, Resident Scholar
