"[Priscilla Royal] stands in the front rank of
medieval mystery writers."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
King Edward's war against the Welsh is going badly. Prioress Eleanor and her brother Robert's family leave Marcher lands for a safer haven, but their journey ends abruptly when his pregnant wife gives birth. A local abbot begs her help resolving the murder of one of his monks, the killer thought to be the ghost of a Welsh brigand hanged for killing English soldiers. Believing a solution is easy, Prioress Eleanor agrees.
But Prioress Eleanor, Brother Thomas and Sister Anne discover that an evil spirit is the least of their worries, and the tale of the hanged man is far from simple. In the midst of war, lies are often painted as truths and truths as lies. Can anyone seeking untainted facts escape mortal danger?
