The Silence of Stones
by Jeri Westerson

London, 1388. When the mythical Stone of Destiny disappears from the throne of England during mass in Westminster Abbey, the populace takes it as a sign to side with King Richard II’s rebellious barons. The last thing the king needs is for his authority to be put in question, especially after his army suffers a crushing defeat against a Scottish uprising.

Desperate, Richard calls in Crispin Guest to find the missing stone. And to ensure that he will do the deed, the king imprisons Jack Tucker and orders Crispin to find the stone before Parliament convenes in three days’ time – or Jack will hang for treason.


“This book is filled with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end. You will get some swashbuckling style action, an interesting and complicated mystery, history, comedy, and some great characters! What more could you ask for? You will not want to miss this book!”

Kings River Life Magazine

“Westerson continues to conjure up a suitably noirish setting as the backdrop for the exploits of her spiritually tortured medieval detective”


Westerson’s tortured protagonist is never dull, and his newest adventure leads to a swift and satisfying conclusion
