After the discovery of three savagely murdered bodies in his parish, Brother Athelstan finds himself involved in the hunt for a dangerous killer. It is clear that two of the victims, a whore and a preacher, surprised an assassin who was then forced to kill them. But who the third victim is, and why someone has gone to so much trouble to kill him, remains a mystery. And can it really have any connection with Sir John Cranston’s attempt to save a women unjustly accused of stabbing a clerk?

    Great book...but FULL of typos

    Paul Doherty is an amazing writer and it would be hard not to love Brother A. and Sir Jack. Doherty paints such a vivid picture, it's like you are in medieval London. As in all the books in the series, the mysteries (there are usually two) are intriguing yet believable. You are enthralled to the last page. That said, there are so many typos that certain phrases and sentences are unintelligible. I think it is a disgrace that publishing now seems to be in the hands of the unlettered!
