Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

France 1310: In the woods near Troyes, a forester stumbles across the body of a stranger. As Bailli Dubois begins his investigation, it becomes apparent that the wife of his best friend is implicated. Hopelessly compromised, the Dean of the Guild of Merchants takes over the case. In the hope of uncovering new evidence, Henri dispatches his clerk - Jean Bellimont - to Paris. Amidst the squalor of the capital, he follows a trail that eventually leads him back to Troyes. Soon a second murder places Jean and Henri in a race against time to save their friend from the gallows. The story draws a compelling account of life in medieval France, and culminates in a dramatic courtroom scene where the true murderer is revealed. This is the third installment of the Jean Bellimont novels. Download it today!

Storyline is terrific, I simply enjoy reading about characters in medieval times, plot was interesting for sure.

A good read, intelligently done, with an interesting setting in medieval times


Wendy

Have just finished this book, the last in the trilogy. What great books they are. Enjoyed them all immensely.


Geoff Clarke

This is the second of Whitton's books I have read, and I find them very descriptive, if a bit confusing in places.

I am an avid reader, of all types of books! This is the 4th book I have downloaded from this site and I must say I really enjoyed it! The cast is a bit confusing at first, but the plot is well written and delivers the most important thing of all...a twist!!! Very enjoyable 4 hours!


Sandie Choong

A book set in ancient time but just as entertaining, a page turner.


Grace Warren

I enjoyed 'A Fatal Homecoming' very much. I would like to read more of Mr. Whitton's works. I find him quite refreshing.


Mal Owen

Normand Chretien

Roshni Somaiya

A very good book, written in an engaging manner


Douglas Thomas

I have finished my first e-book, A FATAL HOMECOMING, a Jean Bellimont Mystery by Trevor Whitton. It is well-written and very interesting, being a murder mystery set in 1310 France. At times I tended to get a bit distracted by the large number of characters, but those were momentary points and the reason for the large number of people became clear as the story unfolded. Jean is the clerk to the local law enforcement official, called a Bailli, and he is at the center of the case, as the Bailli, Henri, has been rendered impotent to act due to his friendship with the suspected murderer. All comes out very well at the end, and the descriptions of France in those times is very enlightening. I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, but please keep an open mind and wait for the case to become clear. The ending is one no reader could have anticipated.


Will Parks

I enjoyed the story greatly.


mp fdos

Very Good!! Really, the best I've read in a long time. I hope the author keeps writing.


Richard Ward

good story, kept my atention,with the surprise at the end!


Kathleen Thorpe

An excellent 'WHO DONE IT' Although the real murderer was introduced quite early on, I never suspected who it was right until the end. Loved the story.


Mal Owen

Almost as good as the first. Never suspected the ending but the tale might have been padded out a bit too much in places. Looking forward to another in the series.


Bev Landgren

I love a good mystery and I can count on not knowing who did it till the end with this writer.


Glenn

Enjoyed the book read it ecover to ecover.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Trevor Whitton

I am a retired recruitment consultant with a strong interest in European medieval history, and endeavor to weave that knowledge into my story lines. My travels throughout Europe (and particularly France) over the past thirty years allows me to bring a first hand account of the places I describe, and provides an air of authenticity to my narrative. I am a passionate and committed writer, and Pilgrimage is the first of the series featuring Jean Bellimont, Scribe of Troyes.
