It is 1324, and a disastrous autumn looms large. In Dartmouth, a man is found lying dead in the road, but the inhabitants of this little haven dismiss his death as a drunken accident. Their attentions are turned to more worrying matters—piracy. A ship, the St. John, has been discovered, half-ravaged and the crew missing, in an attack that bears all the hallmarks of the supposedly disbanded Lyme Pirates. Could this be the beginning of a vicious onslaught, or is something even more sinister happening? Sir Baldwin Furnshill has been warned of spies reaching the great traitor Roger Mortimer. If this is true and messages are reaching Mortimer, civil war in England is inevitable. And so the Kingdom’s most powerful and ruthless men demand that Baldwin and Bailiff Simon Puttock uncover the truth, and quickly. This is to be the most important investigation of their lives—fail and they will be executed, succeed and there will be others ready to silence them forever.

Michael Jecks continues with is impressively well-researched medieval murder mysteries with "The Death Ship of Dartmouth," and this time takes the reader into the worlds of fourteenth-century England's seafaring commerce, abusive royal power, and the well-earned pride of the people of the critical port town of Dartmouth. Pirates and storms threaten the lives of Darmouth's sailors; but, Jecks deftly shows that what happens on shore can be just as deadly, and that in a corrupt age representatives of an Englishman's own king's cronies can be more blood-thirsty than any Breton pirate. A particularly gratifying quality of this tale is its demonstration of the redemption and significance that can be in store for medieval life's seemingly lower players, be they street pavers or criminals abjuring the realm.

I started with the very first in the series "the Last Templar and so far I have read 25 in the series .I am still determined to reach each and every one in the order they were written. Each book is like revisiting old friends. For everyone interested in 14th Century England, Jecks' series is a must. There is much about knights but also much, much about life of ordinary people in an extraordinary time. He does quell the romanticism a person may hold for life in the times of knights and heroes. It's easy to see if you were not at the very top of the proverbial foodchain, life in the early 1300's was tough and uncertain. I have read a lot about the Knights Templar but Jecks brings it home on a personal level through the stories of Sir Baldwin. To think such a mighty Order was brought down by the greed and avarice of mainly two men and their "advisors" - the King of France and the Pope. Sad. Jecks' books are sometimes hard for a person in Minnesota who is not a world traveler, but doing a little research with online dictionaries and maps makes the story even more real.

This book took the series back to a solid 5 star rating. The action was non-stop and I found myself actually emotionally involved in some of the "mob" scenes. I recommend this book and most of the series to anyone who enjoys a good story.

I have been reading Necks novels right from the start. He has a gift for writing about this period in England. His characters are perfect for the period. He will take you on a tour of the period that will keep you wanting more.

I have purchased all 27 of the books in this series through Amazon; some new, some used. I love them! They are mysteries set around 1325 and are light and peopled by interesting characters. One learns of the hard times suffered by the common men and women and the abuses of royalty during the period. Although there are some gruesome murder scenes and rape and incest, I would say that these books are a relief from the sex and violence prevalent in the media today.

Michael Jecks continues on his normal exciting, midieval whodonit while painting a fascinating picture of 12th century England - always a complete pleasure to read!!

Michael Jecks is such a consistent writer for interesting characters. It is best to read his books in sequence, because the people in his books take on a real life to the reader, making you want to continue reading about their lives.
Not one of my favorite Jecks book's. It lagged in suspense...too detail---much not necessary.
