The Fifth Knight - E.M. Powell - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of The Fifth Knight:

The conspiracy of Thomas Becket's murder and the aftermath with the Abbess.

My favorite E.M. Powell quote from the book:

"You can cut and cut at a serpent's tail. Unless you sever the head, it can still devour you."


Questions to ponder while reading The Fifth Knight:

How much do you know of Henry II?

Is assassination ever appropriate?

Thoughts about The Fifth Knight:

A very fun, historical read.

Fast-paced and full of action.

Not *entirely* accurate.
