Описание: To get a fresh start away from a bad relationship, Kylie Strange moves across the country to open a shop in a seemingly quiet town in rural Maine. During renovations on Strange Herbs & Teas, she discovers a peculiar and ancient codex, The Booke of the Hidden, bricked into the wall. Every small town has its legends and unusual histories, and this artifact sends Kylie right into the center of Moody Bog's biggest secret. While puzzling over the tome's oddly blank pages, Kylie gets an unexpected visitor-Erasmus Dark, an inscrutable stranger who claims to be a demon, knows she has the book, and warns her that she has opened a portal to the netherworld. Kylie brushes off this nonsense, until a series of bizarre murders put her, the newcomer, at the center. With the help of the demon and a coven of witches she befriends while dodging the handsome but sharp-eyed sheriff, Kylie hunts for a killer-that might not be human. Contains mature themes.

Strange, blood-curdling mischief is afoot at St Modwen's Church. Corpses are stalking the graveyard at night, disturbing graves, dragging coffins and displaying vampiric tendencies.

Meanwhile, an urgent summons arrives from Crispin's former love, Philippa Walcote. Her seven-year-old son, Christopher, has been accused of murder and of attempting to steal a family relic - the missing relic of St Modwen, it transpires - and the case takes an unexpected twist when Crispin discovers that Christopher is his own son. Who is behind the gruesome occurrences in the graveyard? Is Christopher guilty of murder? Crispin faces a desperate race against time to solve the strange goings-on at St Modwen's and prove his son's innocence.

Описание: When a corpse turns up at his favorite tavern, Crispin Guest-disgraced knight turned detective--begins an inquiry, but the dead man turns out to be a Templar knight, an order thought to be extinct for 75 years, charged with protecting a certain religious relic which is now missing. Before he can begin to investigate, Crispin is abducted by shadowy men who are said to be minions of the French anti-pope. Further complicating matters are two women: one from court with an enticing proposition, and another from Crispin's past, dredging up long-forgotten emotions he would rather have left behind. And as if all that weren't enough, a cunning young cutpurse by the name of Jack Tucker has insinuated himself into Crispin's already difficult life. The deeper Crispin probes into the murder, the more it looks like the handiwork of an old friend turned adversary. With enemies from all sides, Crispin has his hands full in more than murder in this intriguing prequel to the acclaimed series.Richmond Times-Dispatch says: "Steeped in vivid historical detail, focused on a heroic protagonist and structured toward a shocking and shattering climax, "Cup of Blood" cements Westerson's bona fides as a master of medieval murder." Booklist says: "Westerson paints a murky portrait of a medieval world suitably full of shadowy characters and unexpected twists and turns."Bestselling author Timothy Hallinan, author of the Poke Rafferty Bangkok thrillers says: "CUP OF BLOOD starts like a clap of thunder... Crispin maintains his standing as one of today's (and yesterday's) most engaging private eyes. I loved it "Lesa Holstine, Librarian says: "Crispin Guest and Jack Tucker are the Don Quixote and Sancho Panza of 14th century London, on their own grand adventures to right wrongs and maintain the knight's code of chivalry and honor..."Historical Novel Society Review says: "The author creates a provocative tale...one with an involved plot and an unexpected climax."Cup of Blood finaled for the Bruce Alexander Historical Mystery Award and semi-finaled for the M.M. Bennets Historical Fiction Award

Two monks lie murdered, their Holy Blood relic stolen: a relic that is said to run liquid for the sinless and remain stubbornly dry for the sinner. Unwilling to become involved in a bitter dispute between a country monastery and Westminster Abbey, the disgraced former knight Crispin Guest attempts to return the relic to Hailes where it belongs, but somehow it keeps returning to his hands no matter what. As he tries to shield a former nemesis from a charge of murder while becoming entangled with a mysterious and beautiful woman caught between Church politics and the dangerous intrigues of King Richard's court, Crispin begins to suspect that someone at Westminster is conspiring with the assassins. Can the Blood of Christ point to the killer?
