About this title


The third mystery in a medieval series set in Canterbury continues the unlikely partnership of physician Kathryn Swinbrooke and soldier Colum Murtagh as a painter confesses to murder and Kathryn and Colum are trapped in a snowstorm with a killer. By the author of The Eye of God.

From Booklist:

Blackmail, treachery, and treason abound as Kathryn Swinbrooke, leech and physician, and Colum Murtagh, soldier and king's commissioner in Canterbury, team up to solve a string of murders in another evocative historical whodunit steeped in suspense, sexual tension, and authentic period detail. When Sir Reginald Erpingham an unscrupulous and venal tax collector, imbibes a fatal cup of poison during the height of a raging blizzard that has stranded a handful of disparate wayfarers in a comfortable tavern and hostelry, Kathryn and Colum must expose the perpetrator and, more importantly, recover a fortune in stolen royal taxes or risk suffering the unbridled wrath of King Edward. While feverishly investigating the transgression against the crown, they are sidetracked by both the inexplicable disappearance of Colum's faithful servitor and a local crime of passion that arouses Kathryn's suspicions. Kathryn must employ all of her considerable talents and skills as a healer and a herbalist to painstakingly piece together a patchwork of perplexing clues. Writing as C. L. Grace, P. C. Doherty provides another riveting installment in an outstanding series of medieval mysteries. Margaret Flanagan
