Simon Kirby-Jones Mysteries #4

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cat in the Stacks Mystery Series, a traditional British village cozy mystery series... with a twist!

"A delight from start to finish. Everything you could wish for in a British cozy. Simon Kirby-Jones is a charming and intriguing sleuth who puts the village of Snupperton Mumsley squarely on the mystery map."
- Dorothy Cannell


"A delightful English village whodunit filled with some of the most eccentric characters you'll ever run across in a mystery novel."
- The Denver Post


Lady Prunella Blitherington, the grande dame mother of Simon Kirby-Jones's handsome trusty assistant, Giles, has just sold one of her meadows to a London businessman who plans to turn the land into a lucrative tourist attraction. But first he has to figure out how to oust a club zealously dedicated to medieval reenactments.

Since Henry Baker, the original "king" of the group is vehemently opposed to the idea of a tourist attraction, he is expelled for a more amenable leader, restaurant owner Luke d'Amboise. But when Henry is found poisoned by a fig pastry (recipe included!), Simon discovers a bitter rivalry within the medieval players... could it be enough to kill a king?!?

Simon already has his hands full discovering who is at the bottom of this coup d'etat - when Tristan Lovelace, Simon's very charming former boyfriend visits Snupperton Mumsley. Will Simon succumb to Tristan's charisma or will he finally soften towards Giles Blitherington, his always loyal personal assistant?
