Crispin Guest, Tracker of London, is enjoying his ale in the Boar's Tusk tavern - until a stranger leaves a mysterious wrapped bundle on his table, telling him, "You'll know what to do." Inside is an ancient 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 itself. Crispin 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 destroyed.… (mais)

Fantastic Mind Candy

I don’t recall how I first encountered Westerson’s first Crispin Guest novel, but it was very soon after it was placed on Amazon. Since then I have eagerly awaited each new release, and devoured immediately. This story is similar to the other’s yet interestingly different. If you enjoyed her previous novels, this one is equally entertaining. ( )

Mysterious books, murders, saints, and an unforgettable protagonist. Although this isn’t the first book in the series, it works fine as a stand alone. There’s plenty of intrigue as a book that could challenge the reigning Christian church is handed off to Crispin. A wonderful historical mystery that will keep you captivated. ( )

Of rogues and relics!

God's blood! A most favorite medieval oath in Crispin Guest novels. And oh my goodness, a sharp comment on this Crispin novel with surprises around every corner.
I don't want to give anything away but the encounters dogging Crispin's progress are almost a catalogue of The Tracker's life until now.
Miraculous really!
So Crispin is having a drink at his favorite watering hole, the Boar's Tusk tavern when some unknown fellow leaves a parcel for him with the words, "You'll know what to do with it."
The roughly wrapped bundle is an ancient leather bound book written in an unknown language, although our Crspin has some clue. However as he goes about trying to have this codex deciphered, death dogs those individuals he involves. Powerful enemies are abroad! This relic, shrouded in secrecy, is attracting those who would destroy all knowledge of it. Crispin fears for the life of Jack Tucker's family, now his family. Crispin and Jack have added impetuous for solving the mystery.
Added to this there seems to be a person abroad presenting himself to Londoners as The Tracker. This cannot be allowed to continue. Crispin's tracker reputation is all he has left and he guards it jealously.
Thinking back to the younger Crispin and contrasting him to the older more thoughtful, even wiser person he now is, rounds out the Crispin we all know and love, even when we are cross with him.
In many ways this story, apart from the mysteries involved, is a catalogue that points towards the emotional healing of Crispin. This more mature Crispin is a soothing balm.
I'm hoping for more resolution in this area in future works.

This novel was sent to me by the publisher Severn House via NetGalley. Thank you.

Crispin Guest, finder and tracker extraordinaire, is juggling multiple cases in this medieval mystery. When a stranger gives him a package in his favorite pub Crispin is puzzled, especially when the stranger mutters a cryptic “You will know what to do with it” and then leaves. Inside is a book written in a language Crispin does not recognize. He consults three men and the book, written on parchment, proves to be an unknown gospel. Within a day the three men are murdered and Crispin is honor bound to discover their killer.

Meanwhile Queen Ann has died and the Duke of Lancaster, Crispin’s old mentor before he was disgraced and dismissed from court, hires him to find out if the queen was murdered. If that was not enough, someone is running around London pretending to be Crispin himself. Oh, and Bishop Becke, an old enemy from up north, plans to beat Crispin to a bloody pulp if the book is not handed to him immediately. Plus, little Christopher Walcote keeps popping up and a crazy (psychic?) beggar hounds the tracker’s steps exhorting him to “answer to the dead.” And Crispin is visited by a genuine saint!

Everything happens in less than a week! No wonder Crispin is feeling his age.

If the murder mystery is a little muddled. the rest of the novel is a great deal of fun. It is nice to catch up with Crispin’s self-made family. Jack has two children and another on the way. Crispin’s encounters with the people he knew at court is a window into his previous privileged life. And London street life is always fascinating. ( )
