TRalph Delchard, a veteran of the Battle of Hastings, and lawyer Gervase Bret press on with the mission entrusted to them by William the Conqueror: to investigate peculiarities revealed during the compilation of the Domesday Book, the great survey of England. Journeying throughout the kingdom the duo face being ensnared in alarming mysteries in the towns they visit.

The small village of Maldon is controlled by the wealthy and rapacious FitzCorbucion family. When the eldest son, Guy, is found murdered, his father demands justice and will stop at nothing to get it. Delchard and Bret arrive into a charged atmosphere and are entangled in a case far more dangerous than their original task.

    Thanks to Lesley@allisonandbusby for Book 2 of the Domesday Series which I very much enjoyed. I am going to reread this whole series ( read 1-3 in the past).Book #2 had much more vibrant characterization than the first, often the case for series!

    Continuing to follow Gervase Bret,chancery legal expert and half Saxon,and Ralph Delchaird Norman soldier and their clerical assistants, as they continue to follow problems in the Domesday Book. The foursome and it’s escorts are much more comfortable with each other than in the pilot book of the series.

    There continue to be tensions between Saxons, Normans, and occasionally Danes in the recently conquered land, and the mix of this group of fixers” seem to work well. Post Norman Conquest 11th Century England is quite fascinating in it’s customs laws and mores and I am on to the next volume.
