Description

It's 1321 and Lady Elizabeth of Topsham, prioress of St Mary's, is fighting to retain her position in the face of an accusation from Sister Margherita, the treasurer, that she has given much-needed funds to the new vicar, a man she often sees alone - at night. Many of the nuns are convinced that Margherita would make a better prioress - especially now a young nun has been found murdered on her sickbed. Sir Baldwin Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace and his old friend Bailiff Simon Puttock are summoned to investigate and when a second nun is murdered, they find themselves facing their most difficult case yet.show more

Review quote

'Jecks draws his characters with a craftsman's hand, evokes atmosphere with the touch of an old master and keeps you wriggling on the hook of suspense as skilfully as Christie at her best. Enjoyable to the very end' -- NORTHERN ECHO 'Wickedly exciting' -- NEWCASTLE EVENING CHRONICLE 'A compelling mystery book and one to cherish' -- CRIME TIMEshow more
