The Tinner’s Corpse
by Bernard Knight

Coroner Sir John is plunged into the world of the tinners in this entertaining instalment in the Crowner John medieval mystery series, set in twelfth-century England.

1195. When county coroner Sir John de Wolfe is summoned to the bleak Devonshire moors to investigate the murder of a tin miner, he has little idea how difficult this new investigation will prove.

The victim is a well-loved overman of Devon’s most successful mine owner, Walter Knapman. Only one motive seems probable – to sabotage Walter’s business. But the tinners have their own laws and are none too pleased at Crowner John’s interference. And then Walter disappears . . .

A decapitated body, a missing tinner, a disgruntled band of miners – how on earth can Crowner John, battling personal problems of his own, sort all this out? Only Gwyn, John’s indispensable right-hand man, seems to be of any help at all – until Gwyn himself is arrested and tried for murder . . .
