A Bertram Bile time travel adventure, set along the length of the River Thames.
Thorkell was once the most famous court jester in all the land - best friend to King Aethelstan and the man who rallied the troops before every successful battle. He loved nothing more than warming up a crowd ready to receive the king. Things were a bit more tricky these days, what with him being dead and not as handsome looking as he was before he lost his skin and bones.
If only Thorkell could perform for a crowd, just once more, it would mean the world (and the underworld) to him. Is there anything that Bertram and Molly can do to make a jester laugh one more time?
The Dead Jester is the sixth audiobook in the Bertram Bile time travel adventure series, which follows the course of the River Thames from its source in Gloucestershire to the North Sea in Essex. But don't worry if you miss an audiobook or two, you can jump in at any point in the series.
