Publisher's Summary

The much-feared and hated Eudo - the Lord Bishop of Winchester's clerk - is bludgeoned to death in Pershore Abbey and laid before the altar in the attitude of a penitent. Everyone who had contact with him had reason to dislike him, but who had reason to kill him?

The Sheriff of Worcestershire's thief taker, wily Serjeant Catchpoll, and his new and unwanted superior, Undersheriff Hugh Bradecote, have to find the answer. And as the claustrophobic walls of the abbey close in on the suspects, the killer strikes again....

    "it was just ok."

    Second half was better, but just didn't connect with any of the characters. I like Sgt. Catchpoll. Matt Addis was so soothing in his narration at the beginning that I was getting drowsy listening. not sure I will listen to second book or not.

    Story
    "Medieval armchair mystery"

    Not a lot happens even though four people are killed. We don't see any of the murders and much of the book is taken up by interviews of a long list of suspects. each of the suspects is in turn determined to be the killer, only to have our two law enforcement officers spend more time discussing why their conclusions are wrong, and then move on to the next suspect. i almost stopped after the first chapter which felt like a stream of consciousness introduction to the cast of characters. the author moves from one to the next so rapidly, they began to run together.

    The narrator improved as he went along. His individual voices were fine but his narration lacked was flat in the beginning.
