"In Chaucer's Canterbury Tales,the pilgrims narrate tales during the days of their journeys to Canterbury, while in this brilliant series, each pilgrim entertains the company at night with a tale of murder or mystery." "As Chaucer's pilgrims take shelter for the night around a roaring fire in a friary, The Franklin narrates a mysterious, bloody story set in 1356 with the victory of the Black Prince at Poitiers. During the fight, a young squire, Richard Greenele, lies dying and reveals to his knight, Gilbert Savage, information leading to the discovery of his true parentage and the dreadful secrets surrounding his father's disgraceful death. As the truth evolves into a heinous tale of duplicity and murder, and a search for the lawyer, Hugo Coticol, who holds a sealed letter containing the facts, Gilbert is compelled to avenge his father's death."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Well, aside from the book jacket completely mixing up the main storyline, this was a charming entry. The characters were well-written and the setting was spot-on. My only complaint is that Doherty went for the obvious ending. I’ve come to expect more from him, and I was disappointed to see him take the easy way out.
