A Murder Too Soon by Michael Jecks
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
It's 1554 and Jack Blackjack (a former thief), is now employed as an unlikely assassin by John Blount who thankfully for Jack sends him to Woodstock, the place of imprisonment of the Lady Elizabeth to kill a spy in her household.
Soon after he arrives the murder occursand as he is First Finder he must prove his innocence by determing who is the guilty party.
As I didn't take to the character of Jack and it seemed that whatever could go wrong did, this did tend to spoil my enjoyment of the tale.
