In fourteenth century London, Crispin Guest is a disgraced knight convicted of treason and stripped of his land, title and his honor. He has become known as the "Tracker"--a man who can find anything, can solve any puzzle and, with the help of his apprentice, Jack Tucker, an orphaned street urchin with a thief 's touch--will do so for a price. But this time, even Crispin is wary of taking on his most recent client. Jacob of Provencal is a Jewish physician at theKing's court, even though all Jews were expelled from England nearly a century before. Jacob wants Crispin to find stolen parchments that might be behind the recent, ongoing, gruesome murders of young boys, parchments that someone might have used to bring forth a demon which now stalks the streets and alleys of London.

"Minotaur is billing this series as “Medieval Noir” and, surprisingly, it fits. The date is 1384 and the place is London, but Crispin Guest – the disgraced former knight known as “the Tracker” – owes far more to Sam Spade than to Brother Cadfael."

A new series for me; typical of the medieval mystery genre.
