Review: Crown in Darkness | Paul Doherty, P.C. Doherty

I felt like it was time to join Hugh Corbett as he solves another medieval mystery, and so it was that I picked up Paul Doherty’s book Crown In Darkness. You might remember that he has about twelve in the series, and I’m slowly making my way through them.


This time Hugh Corbett went to Scotland following the ‘accidental’ death of Alexander III of Scotland to investigate the circumstances on behalf of the Chancellor. I really enjoyed the medieval nature of the plot and especially the journey to the dark forest in Scotland to visit the Picts, often referred to as pixies, goblins or elves.


Once they were a proud people and ruled the greater part of Scotland but the Celts, the Angles, the Saxons and the Normans drove them from their lands into the dark vastness of the forests.”



I thoroughly recommend this author to anyone who enjoys medieval mystery and intrigue.


My rating = ***


That’s my four bucks!
