A young Geoffrey Chaucer awaits you in "A Death in Catte Street", new to his career as a courtier. He is retrospectively looking back at this event in his life and is critical of his youth and impulsiveness.
A young Geoffrey can be seen as well as the man he will become in his interaction with parents, authority figures, peers and casual acquaintances. He is impulsive and empathetic and a typical young man, albeit of a different age.
The mystery that unfolds as he is pushed into a murder investigation is intriguing.Geoffrey ends up a hero of sorts and a champion of those less fortunate.
Geoffrey's character as well as those who are in his sphere is very well developed. Crafted by a medieval scholar and historian it is a tale worth snatching up and reading.
I am very glad I did so.
