Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the body of a man is found dead in the cloister garden of St. Mary's nunnery, Dame Frevisse is not surprised to learn the man is Master Montfort, who was not especially well-liked in the community--even by his wife and clerk. Montfort was trying to settle a heated inheritance dispute. Now, Dame Frevisse must step in and untangle the fortunes and felonies in this complicated case of political and familial rivalries.

Synopsis:

St. 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. The victim was not especially well-liked-even by his wife and clerk. Now, Dame Frevisse must step in and solve the killing. But her real challenge is to put aside her feelings and serve justice for the murder of an unjust man.
