A Medieval Ghost Story

The Tale of the Tailor and the 3 Dead Kings

How could I resist this book on the sale table on my way to pick up some lunch? The cover, the title, and the blurb all convinced me it was a good choice.

600 years ago, a medieval monk set down a true story of the Supernatural. Now, bestselling historian Dan Jones has resurrected this forgotten folk tale of a humble soul and a tormented spirit...and retold it for our times. SOLD!

But when I finally got to the ghost story and read it quite quickly, I wondered if had I missed some pages in my haste. I reread the story to myself out loud to make sure I got every word. The introduction and the chapter on the Byland Abbey Ghost stories were fascinating while the story itself took some background reading to truly appreciate.
