Octrine of Christianity itselfCrispin is soon drawn into a deadly maze involving Codex Crispin Guest ePUB #185 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 destroyed. 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
