Paul Matthews's warm, deep voice and intelligent pacing are just right for this intriguing mystery set in Exeter, England, in 1195. "Crowner" John, who holds the newly created position of coroner, must solve a series of connected murders while also coping with the annual visit of the royal judges and the continuous misdeeds of his brother-in-law, the sheriff. Author Bernard Knight, a historian, fills the involving tale with historical facts that add to the story's authenticity and fascination. Prepare to be transported to another time and place, and prepare to miss the Crowner when the story ends. Let's hope Clipper Audio and Paul Matthews record more Crowner John mysteries as soon as possible. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
