Quick Overview

Matthew Bartholomew doesn't want to travel to Peterborough in the summer of 1358, but his friendship with Julitta Holm has caused a scandal in Cambridge, so he has no choice.

This unrest and discontent seems to have spread throughout the town, and there are bitter rivalries between competing shrines and the financial benefits of the relics they hold. One of these shrines is dedicated to Lawrence de Oxforde, a robber and murderer who was executed for his crimes, but who has been venerated ever since miracles started occurring at his grave. But when Bartholomew and his friend Brother Michael go to investigate, they find murder instead...
