The Lirey Shroud Mystery

What readers have had to say:

“A very good read.”

“I loved the “shroud” mystery. As with Jean’s other stories I was totally captivated and transported back to the early 1400’s on every page. Thanks for the entertainment.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this series and wished there were more…I would certainly recommend the entire series. Easy, fun reading. Hope to see more from you in the future Trevor! Thanks.”

“This was the first of this author I had read. Really enjoyed it. Am now almost finished his other three.”

“I am pleased to find another Jean Bellimont story! Mr. Whitton has created great characters in Jean and his family and as a reader you feel like you really get to know and like them.”

“Enjoyed this one very much. All the Jean Bellimont stories are well crafted. Thank you.”

“Excellent story and an easy read, slightly slower than the other Jean Bellimont stories.”

“Very well crafted…”

A Fatal Homecoming

What readers have had to say:

“I love a good mystery and I can count on not knowing who did it till the end with this writer.”

“An excellent ‘WHO DONE IT’ Although the real murderer was introduced quite early on, I never suspected who it was right until the end. Loved the story.”

“Enjoyed the book read it ecover to ecover.”

“Like the old english style of writing/thinking..intriguing..enjoyed the three-book series..quick moving with interesting historical information.”

“Good story, kept my attention with the surprise at the end!”

“Very Good!! Really, the best I’ve read in a long time. I hope the author keeps writing.”

“I enjoyed the story greatly.”

I have finished my first e-book, A FATAL HOMECOMING, a Jean Bellimont Mystery by Trevor Whitton. It is well-written and very interesting, being a murder mystery set in 1310 France. At times I tended to get a bit distracted by the large number of characters, but those were momentary points and the reason for the large number of people became clear as the story unfolded. Jean is the clerk to the local law enforcement official, called a Bailli, and he is at the center of the case, as the Bailli, Henri, has been rendered impotent to act due to his friendship with the suspected murderer. All comes out very well at the end, and the descriptions of France in those times is very enlightening. I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, but please keep an open mind and wait for the case to become clear. The ending is one no reader could have anticipated.

“A very good book, written in an engaging manner.”

“Very good to the end.”

“As with the prequel I enjoyed this very much. Would like to see more in this series”

I enjoyed ‘A Fatal Homecoming’ very much. I would like to read more of Mr. Whitton’s works. I find him quite refreshing.

“A book set in ancient times…a page turner.”

“I am an avid reader, of all types of books! ..I must say I really enjoyed (this book)! The cast is a bit confusing at first, but the plot is well written and delivers the most important thing of all…a twist!!! Very enjoyable 4 hours!” Note from author: It is highly recommended that these books are read in the order they are written. This allows you to build up a familiarity with the main characters.

“Have just finished this book, the last in the trilogy. What great books they are. Enjoyed them all immensely.” Note from author: There is now a fourth book – “The Lirey Shroud Mystery.”

“A good read, intelligently done, with an interesting setting in medieval times.”

A Convenient Solution

What readers have had to say:

“This is a brilliantly written historical thriller. Apart from a great whodunit mystery, it depicts a major era of French history which was carefully glossed over when I was a student in France. I am now going to read the other works from this author.”

“I couldn’t walk away from this nicely crafted book, a smaller and less complicated tale of the middle ages reminiscent of the battle between church and state chronicalled in Ken Follett’s “Pillars of the Earth.” Trevor Whitton has joined the short list of my favourite authors.”

“Just excellent for those who enjoy mystery and history all cooked into one.”

“This is an excellent read, very believable with excellent characterisation and plot. I liked this so much I have donated to the author – please write more novels and post them here!”

“Simply superb . . . cant stop reading till the last page.”

“Yup this is good!”

“I found it very good and exciting it was well written.”

“I loved the writing style and the Characters were very realistic. Thank you, a truly amazing and enjoyable book.”

“Enjoyed the plot and the sense of humour in the characters.”

“I read the first book and liked the twist in the ending, Clever.”

“Good book, remained interesting throughout.”

“Very good read, Factual events incorporated into a great story. – character really came alive. excellent – thanks.”

“Very enjoyable read. Interesting characters – good story. I enjoyed the historic link…”

“Excellent read, very entertaining and hard to “put down”.

“Good insight into a way of life and the harshness inflicted on people by the landowners and royals of the time. Also includes a fine little detective story.”

“A wonderful page turner with a nicely interwoven detective story. It kept me “on alert” until the very end.”

“Quite an intriguing story that would keep a reader in suspense until the end of the book. Worth reading.”

“Very entertaining read. Great fiction, but fiction that follows historical facts.”

“Great book. I would recommend it to anyone.”

“This is a great book. Highly recommended.”

“Enjoyed this immensely and also the sequel”

“Excellent book. Very well written.”

Beautifully written and well paced. Wonderfully atmospheric.

All Trevor’s books are worthwhile. albhabetically this comes up in the file list first, but you must get PILGRIMAGE first then follow up with the rest… engaging, flowing narrative with an excellent sense of place – The Family Travel book is also great fun!

“A very good read, would read all Trevor Whitton’s books.”

“Great story. Lots of twists & turns. An extra challenge for the characters working on the case – no forensics like we have in modern times. Characters all seem 3 dimensional – they have strengths & flaws.I stumbled on this book by accident, but have sought out the others & enjoyed them too.”

“I really enjoyed this book, it compares well with the Robyn Young books I have read so I will look forward to reading another from this author.”

“I enjoyed this book very much and although not knowing much about France during this period in history it was certainly opened my eyes regarding the relationship between crown and church…”

“Read this one straight after Pilgrimage and am now almost finished the 3rd one. Really good books, will be sorry when they are finished.Look forward to more from this author.”

“Brilliant, the Jean Bellimont Mysteries are all well worth the read. Trevor Whitton’s writing will entertain all readers.”

“I love the genre, and this excellent find. This book was the reason I got a VIP membership, as any site that yields a gem like this is precisely where I want to be. I will be investigating more of this author’s work.”

Pilgrimage

What readers have had to say:

“This is an excellent read at several levels, and provides some interesting history lessons as well. The characters and the times are brought realistically to life. Mr Whitton has written 3 novels in this series based on Jean Bellimont. I recommend you read them in the sequence they were written. Pilgrimage is first, then A Fatal Homecoming, and finally A Convenient Solution. If you read them out of sequence it may spoil some surprises for you. All three novels in the series are well worth reading. I very much hope Mr Whitton writes many more.”

“What an ending!!! I enjoyed this book so much.”

“I really enjoyed this book – I felt it captured the period well, lots of atmosphere and detail. Great twist at the end – didn’t see it coming! will look for other books by this author.”

“Interesting plot, well rounded characters and really evokes the era. I liked the humour threaded through the story and the twist at the end caught me by surprise.”

“Compelling read, will definitely read more by this author.”

“Remarkable story of great historical value. Stunningly realistic description of the Christian world in the middle ages.”

“Good series of books by Trevor Whitton read them all and all are first class.”

“Keeps going at a good pace most of the time and the surprise ending was superb. Even looking back afterwards, impossible to see it coming!”

“Good story. Good twist at the end.”

“Great! Well paced, interesting, well informed. I have done part of that same Pilgrimage and I can tell that the author had done a lot of serious research. Thanks for writing!”

“I just kept on reading, couldn’t put it down for long! And the ending…”

“An enjoyable read and a good twist at the end.”

“Great book, well written, love this author. Thanks for writing Trevor.”
