Knaves Templar

By Leonard Tourney

One by one, law students are dying.

All are deemed suicides, but in truth they are murders, and it befalls humble clothier Matthew Stock to unravel the truth. Moving into a chamber in the Middle Temple that had been the room of one of the victims, he pursues the ghostly killer.

Meanwhile Matthew’s wife Joan follows her nose through London’s bawdy Elizabethan streets, where she uncovers what she can scarcely believe: a secret connection between a filthy, dangerous tavern and the foul crimes her husband is risking his life to solve. Can they catch the killer before they become victims themselves?

Knaves Templar is book 6 in the widely acclaimed Joan and Matthew Stock Mystery series, and is as rich in historical detail as it is in suspense.

Leonard Tourney was born and raised in Southern California. Leonard Tourney has spent his professional life as a teacher of writing and literature, especially that of William Shakespeare.
