Sanctuary Seeker

Bernard Knight. Severn House Publishers, $25.99 (336pp) ISBN 978-0-7278-5913-6

Crowner John, coroner for the county of Devon, must deal with his obstructive brother-in-law, Sheriff Richard de Revelle, during an inquest on an unidentified body in Bernard Knight's The Sanctuary Seeker: A Crowner John Mystery, the first title in this solid British medieval series. Powerful nobles and church officials aren't so helpful either.
