Product description

From the Back Cover


In the spring of 1145 a precious reliquary is stolen from the Benedictine Abby of Saint Peter and Saint Paul at Shrewsbury and the question arises: was the theft for profit, or a Holy one? Brother Cadfael, a monk with a bent for sleuthing, turns his mind to the problem – but before the answer is found a young man is brutally murdered and the finger of suspicion points to a gifted young musician who is, perhaps, using the Church for his own purpose. Cadfael must work fast if justice is to be done…

Ellis Peters has woven a splendid tale for Brother Cadfael's nineteenth outing, enthralling, romantic and brilliantly effective.
