Publisher's Summary

In 1358 the fledging college of Michaelhouse in Cambridge is in need of extra funds. A legacy from the Archbishop of York of a parish close to that city promises a welcome source of income. However, there has been another claim to its ownership, and it seems the only way to settle the dispute is for a deputation from Michaelhouse to travel north.

Matthew Bartholomew is among the small party which arrives in the bustling city, where the increasing wealth of the merchants is unsettling the established order and where a French invasion is an ever-present threat to its port. But soon he and his colleagues learn that many of the Archbishop's executors have died in unexplained circumstances and that the codicil naming Michaelhouse as a beneficiary cannot be found....

One of the better Matthew Bartholomew Chronicles

This book is better than many of the recent Matthew Bartholomew Chronicles. Michael and Matthew are in York this time which makes a welcome change and the rising flood waters add some much needed drama. This book has more of a plot than most although it does end up getting very complex at the end.

Not one of her best but still a good listen

Excellent narration from David Thorpe as always. The story this time was not up to the standard I am used to from Susanna Gregory. Weaker plot, some of the York characterisation is thin. I did listen through to the end but struggled a wee bit. midway until the pace quickened , ending quite satisfyingly..
