Ncient leather bound book written in an unrecognizable language Accompanied by his apprentice Jack Tucker Crispin takes the unknown codex to a hidden rabbi where they make a shocking discovery it is the Gospel of Judas from the Holy Land and its contents challenge the very doctrine of Christianity. 4 starsInto Crispin Guest s hands falls a very old book recently re covered but the pages are written on papyrus It is the Gospel of Judas Iscariot It challenges and contradicts in some ways the current understanding of Christianity Crispin suspects that he should destroy the book but it does not belong to him and he loves books What to doIt is a time of religious upheaval in England The up and coming Protestants are rallying for followers amongst the citizenry especially a group called the Lollards The Catholic Church and King Richard are incensed at what they see as heresy When Crispin is attacked in the street the tension in an already tense story ratchets up Then a trail of murdered men follow in Crispin s wake The people he spoke to about the book are being killed While traveling from place to place in search of the killers of his acuaintances he and his apprentice Jack solve several and varied crimes He is ushered into King Richard s presence and accused of a plot to murder Richard s ueen He gets away on the strength of his past friendship with the king Crispin is finally pressured into promising to turn the book over to a nefarious Bishop Will he go through with it Will he sove the mysterious identity of the man who gave him the book Will he and Jack get out of this sticky situation alive This book is very well written in Jeri Westerson s usual style The premise is most interesting especially given the era in which it is set While perhaps not so controversial in today s world it was virtually explosive and heretical back then Anyone caught in possession of such a book could be burned at the stake The novel is written in a casual easy to read linear style I enjoy these Crispin Guest novels Not only are they exciting but they give the reader a glimpse into life both the wealthy and the poor in England at the time I am awaiting the release of the next Crispin novelI want to thank NetGalley and Severn HouseSevern House Publishers for forwarding to me a copy of this great book for me to read enjoy and review

ItselfCrispin is soon drawn into a deadly maze involving murder living saints and lethal henchmen Why was he given the blasphemous book and what should he do with it A series of horrific events confirm his fears that there are powerful men who want it and who will stop at nothing to see it destroye. Wow Is that not the most intriguing blurb ever That and the very gorgeous cover drew me in And it didn t even matter that this was the twelfth book in a series which just proves the uality of the writingThe story takes place for the most part in late 14th century London Crispin Guest a former knight is now living in The Shambles with his apprentice Jack Tucker and Jack s young familyIn his role as a tracker now a detective in modern parlance Crispin is used to handling odd cases but not of the sort that is dropped on his table in the Boar s Tusk Tavern He takes the mysterious parcel home and unwraps it to find an old book written in a language he cannot decipherHe seeks out those he hopes can identify the book and its language and while he succeeds in that the repercussions for those who aid him are fatal Now he knows the book is a missing Gospel the Judas Gospel and one which the Catholic Church deems as dangerous and therefore must be destroyed There are those amongst the shadows who wish to relieve him of the book but they have seriously underestimated Crispin if they believe he will simply hand it overAs Crispin endeavours to keep the book safe in the hope of returning it to its rightful owner other events besides those intent on doing him harm if he holds on to the book distract him The three men who helped him out earlier are murdered there s an impostor posing as him and putting his reputation at risk and he is drawn back into the court of King Richard II when the ueen dies Having been banished years before this move puts his life in danger but he cannot stay awayWith all this going on the author still adds depth to Crispin s life outside of his job Firstly with details of his lost love and the young son he cannot acknowledge then with an insight into his past life at court and his bond with Lancaster and finally with his acceptance of his current status and the role that Jack and his family play in bringing him peace and joy despite his less affluent lifestyleThis story comes across as atmospheric and authentic in its historical setting and compelling and intriguing as a mystery Despite there being much of Crispin s past that has been dealt with in previous books of the series this can be read easily as a standalone story That said I am sorely tempted to delve into earlier books and learn of Crispin s fascinating historyA very different kind of mystery both enchanting and tense with wonderful lively characters and a hefty dose of medieval history and setting
