Synopsis: Peter and Katherine (Kori) are taking part in medieval re-enactments (sort of) along with their friends, Geoff and Ann plus another several thousand. One of the horde members is killed and Katherine finds the body; because he laid hands on her earlier, she is suspected of his murder. The local police don't want Peter's help, but his 'King' orders him to find the truth.
Review: This book made me want to go romp in the woods with the folks doing Medieval re-enactments. It's also a nicely crafted mystery. There are plenty of clues so that the reader can figure out 'who done it' any may even get there before the protagonist does. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096535752X, Paperback)

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a group of enthusiasts who research and selectively re-create the Middle Ages for knowledge and for fun. At their events, they wear historical clothing and call each other by medieval-style character names. Once a year, they meet to display their handiwork and stage a mock medieval war.

In Murder at the War, policeman Peter Brichter (known in the SCA as Stefan von Helle) and his wife, Kori (known as Katherine of Tretower) go to the war for the fun. But the revelry turns deadly serious when a known troublemaker, Thorstane Shieldbreaker, is actually murdered. The local police, anxious to find the culprit, turn their attention to Peter and Kori as suspects once they find the two have quarreled with Thorstane. It is up to Lord Stefan and Lady Katherine, with their inside knowledge of the SCA, to clear their names and solve the crime.
