The brothers of the abbey of St Martin's-in-the-Marsh pay little heed to the tales of robber baron Sir Geoffrey Mandeville's ghost galloping through the Lincolnshire fens with a retinue of ghastly horseman. They may hear the shrill blast of a hunting horn, or see the corpse candles glowing in the dark, but their comfortable life is protected by a high wall and their powerful abbot. Until Abbot Stephen, a friend of the King, is found dead and Sir Hugh Corbett, Keeper of the King's Seal, arrives to investigate.

About the Author:

Paul Doherty was born in Middlesbrough. He studied History at Liverpool and Oxford Universities and obtained a doctorate for his thesis on Edward II and Queen Isabella. He is now headmaster of a school in north-east London and lives with his family in Essex.

From Booklist:

Sir Hugh Corbett, keeper of the king's seal, finds that the monastery at St. Martin's-in-the-Marsh is anything but a peaceful sanctuary in the woods. He is there to investigate the death of Abbot Stephen, a former knight who took holy orders. Bandits hide in the surrounding forests and marshes, and the locals think that the ghost of robber chieftain Geoffrey Mandeville haunts the area. Sir Hugh soon learns that the monks are engaged in a bitter power struggle over land that may contain holy relics and a philosophical dispute over the value of exorcism. The escalating body count forces him to use his powers of deduction and observation to uncover the abbey's dark secrets. This series maintains a delightfully satisfying consistency, offering compelling plots, well-developed characters, and plenty of colorful historical detail. Fans who are eagerly awaiting this eleventh installment will be overjoyed, and first-time readers will certainly want to check out Doherty's earlier novels. Barbara Bibel
