Publisher's Summary

February 1381. A ruthless killer known as the Ignifer - Fire Bringer - is rampaging through London. He appears to be targeting all those involved in the recent trial and conviction of the beautiful Lady Isolda Beaumont, burned at the stake for the murder of her husband. As the late Sir Walter Beaumont was a close friend of the Regent, John of Gaunt orders Sir John Cranston and Brother Athelstan to investigate. In the dead man’s possession was a copy of the mysterious Book of Fires, containing the secret formula of a devastating weapon. The manuscript has since disappeared, and Gaunt is desperate for it not to fall into the hands of the Upright Men, who are busy plotting the Great Revolt.

The Book of Fires

Excellent reading. The Book really came to life and the characters were very well defined.

Very Clever Story

Very interesting, exciting and clever story. I love the way London is described while Athelstan ‘Items’ the clues. Terry Wale maintains all the voices each time he reads a Brother Athelstan mystery.

Excellent story

The detail and research in this book are, like the other Brother Athelstan stories, excellent.
I did not see that twist at the end coming.
Now, on to the next one.
