Description
In Margaret Frazer's latest medieval mystery, the "pious and perceptive" (New York Times) Dame Frevisse accompanies her prioress on a visit of mercy to a nunnery-where she becomes entangled in an inheritance dispute, a family feud, and the chaotic aftermath of a brutal murder. "A wonderful series. Frevisse, with her common sense and humor and tang of salt, is one of my favorite sleuths." (Sharon Kay Penman, author of The Queen's Man) "Meticulous detail that speaks of trustworthy scholarship and a sympathetic imagination." (The New York Times) "Full of the richness of the fifteenth century...Margaret Frazer's tales are charmingly and intelligently contrived." (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

display_descriptionSt. Mary's nunnery is a place of prayer and healing for women—so it is surprising to see a man sprawled out in the cloister garden. Dead. Less surprising, to Dame Frevisse, was the identity of the victim. Master Montfort was not particularly liked by anyone in the town of Goring—even his own wife and clerk. As royal escheator, he was trying to settle a heated inheritance dispute between a wealthy woman and her supposed nephew.

Now Dame Frevisse must step in and untangle the fortunes and felonies in this complicated case of political and familial rivalries. But her real challenge is to put aside her feelings and serve justice for the murder of an unjust man.
