Publisher's summary

It is drawing near to the end of term, and the University at Cambridge is in turmoil over the opening of a new common library. There is an attack on one of the masters at a meeting to discuss the matter, and a body is found floating in the pond in the library's garden on the eve of its opening. Meanwhile, there are rumours of a large force of dangerous smugglers lurking in the Fens. Aided by their friend Sheriff Tulyet, Bartholomew and Michael must thwart the invaders before the Feast of Corpus Christi the following week. To fail might mean the destruction of the town....

Hooked on this series

I admit it, I'm hooked. working my way through the trials and tribulations of Dr Matthew Bartholomew and Sr Proctor Michael as they sleuth through another murder mystery of ancient England.

I appreciate that the stories are based on actual historic events and characters. I also appreciate seeing some of the old familiar introduced in prior novels continuing through in the present. Still anxiously awaiting the return of Matilde, who, incidentally, doesn't make a showing in this one, but is still mentioned so we know she is still in the thoughts of our favorite physician Dr Bartholomew.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
