Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

The wife of the Bailli of Troyes is discovered plunging a dagger into the chest of a man who had attacked her several weeks earlier. She escapes, leaving her husband (Henri) and his deputy (Jean Bellimont) to unravel the web of intrigue which led up to this event. The two men become convinced of her innocence, and are eventually led to a mysterious artifact which the murdered man had been commissioned to produce for a local noble. The Bishop of Troyes is also implicated, and Henri must balance his personal interest in the case against the involvement of two of the town's most influential citizens. The investigators are presented with a bewildering array of suspects and motives, before the pieces finally fall into place and the puzzle is solved. This is the fourth Jean Bellimont novel.

Norman Jeffrey

excellent story and an easy read, slightly slower than the other Jean Bellimont stories


H.Narayanan

Very well crafted. There is however no attempt to make people speak as they would have in 1300-1400 AD.You dont expect an employee to speak to his boss (as an equal) the way Jean does.


Mal Owen

Enjoyed this one very much. All the Jean Bellimont stories are well crafted. Thank you


W Nielsen

I have read all 3 of the books of the Bellimont family. I hope there will be a 4th soon


Julia Shonka

I am pleased to find another Jean Bellimont story! Mr. Whitton has created great characters in Jean and his family and as a reader you feel like you really get to know and like them.


Wendy

This was the first of this author I had read. Really enjoyed it. Am now almost finished his other three.

Thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this series and wished there were more. The first book 'Pilgrimage' can be a bit slow at times, but the stories got more interesting with each book in my opinion. Nonetheless I would certainly recommend the entire series. Easy, fun reading. Hope to see more from you in the future Trevor! Thanks.


Sandie Choong

A very good read.


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.
