The 1066 From Normandy
Works of: Fiction
Death and taxes… with extra death.
Yet more medieval detective-sort-of-thing from the best selling author…
Brother Hermitage, the King’s most medieval investigator, is about to discover the true meaning of the Norman Conquest; money.
It’s all very well Saxons fighting William on the battlefield and trying to kill him, but evading his taxes is simply beyond the pale. Something must be done about it. And who better to do something about things than his own investigator?
The first problem is that the King’s Investigator doesn’t understand what it is. But then not understanding things has never held him back in the past.
If tax evasion is a bad thing – which William assures him it is – then the people who do it are positively revolting. Hermitage has dealt with deceit, dishonesty and deception in the past, but he’s never met people who have made it their life’s work.
Needless to say, Wat and Cwen the weavers are dragged into this, quite literally, and Wat seems to know rather too much about dodging tax.
And then, of course, the bodies start piling up. Death and taxes, eh? Who’d have thought…
Brother Hermitage’s 16th adventure and Howard of Warwick’s 21st attempt at synchronised scribbling simply reveal more of the same:
5* “Hurrahs for the ole goofy gang! Another terrifically funny adventure”
5* “More hilarity”
