Historical fiction

Escape into the thrilling medieval world of Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his friend Bailiff Simon Puttock in this collection of three novels from the acclaimed Knights Templar Series by Michael Jecks.

THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR COLLECTION: VOLUME 2 brings together three more of Michael Jecks' most popular Knights Templar mysteries. Join Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and Baliff Simon Puttock as they journey from England to France, and back again, in three riveting tales of murder and intrigue.

The Templar, the Queen & Her Lover: Queen Isabella, wife to Edward II of England, has been dispatched to France in an attempt to bring about peace between the two countries, and Sir Baldwin de Furnshill must accompany her with his friend Simon Puttock. But the day after their arrival, a servant is found murdered, with Baldwin's dagger lying next to the body.

As Baldwin struggles to prove his innocence, the killer strikes again. With so many English enemies gathering in Paris, will he be able to expose the culprit in time to protect the diplomats and their mission?

The Prophecy of Death: It's 1325, and in England turmoil is rife. But could the Prophecy of St Thomas's Holy Oil be the key to saving the ill-fated reign of King Edward II? It is believed the one anointed with it will be a lion among men: he will conquer France, unite Christendom and throw the heathens from the Holy Land.

Meanwhile, Sir Baldwin de Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, and his friend Simon Puttock return from France with urgent messages for the King himself. Soon they find themselves at the centre of a deadly court intrigue involving the most powerful and ruthless men in the country, who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to achieve their ambitions...

The King of Thieves: 1325: Sir Baldwin de Furnshill and his friend Simon Puttock are in France guarding King Edward's son on his perilous journey to meet the French king, Charles IV. But they are unaware that King Edward's wife Isabella is disaffected and plotting her revenge...

What first appears a simple diplomatic mission is fast becoming lethally dangerous. Meanwhile, two murders in Paris are causing alarm. Is there a connection between the killings and the shadowy 'King' of thieves? Simon and Baldwin know the future of the English crown is at risk. And in order to protect it they must put their own lives in jeopardy.
