9781611735185: A Corpse at St. Andrew's Chapel: The Second Chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon (Thorndike Christian Mysteries)

Alan, the beadle of the manor of Bampton, had gone out at dusk to seek those who might violate curfew. The following morning, when he still had not returned home, his wife Matilda sought out Master Hugh de Singleton, surgeon and bailiff of the manor. Two days later Alan's corpse is discovered in the hedge, at the side of the track to St. Andrew's Chapel. His throat has been torn out, his head half-severed from his body and his face, hands, and forearms lacerated with deep scratches. Master Hugh, meeting Hubert the coroner at the scene, listens carefully to the coroner surmise that a wolf has caused the wounds. But Hugh de Singleton has his own theory and it has nothing to do with a wolf.
