Review: Crowner's Crusade (Crowner John Mystery #15)

User Review  - Josh Carroll - Goodreads

Rich in historical substance and interesting characters but not much action or suspense. You can tell this is a prequel trying to fill in gaps that, I assume, are alluded to in the other books on the series. Read full review
