"In the late summer of 1274, King Edward has finally been anointed England's ruler. His queen contemplates a pilgrimage in gratitude for their safe return from Outremer, a journey that will include a stay at Tyndal Priory. Envoys are sent to confirm that everything will be suitable for the king's wife, and Prioress Eleanor nervously awaits them, knowing that regal visits bring expense along with honor. The cost is higher than anticipated, however, when Death arrives as the unexpected emissary. One of the courtiers is murdered near the hut where Brother Thomas now lives as a hermit. Each member of the party has reason to hate the dead man, including Crowner Ralf's eldest brother, Sir Fulke; and the prioress's nemesis, the man in black. Soon Eleanor is embroiled in the dangerous world of power games, both secular and religious. Indeed, England's future under a new king may offer hope and relief, but skeletons from the past can come back to life" - P. [4] of cover.

This was the best one yet of this series. Brother Thomas' spymaster priest is revealed, and he takes a vulnerable boy as a new chess piece to manipulate. He also finds the chink in Eleanor's armor. Once the crimes have been solved, moving the characters into place for the future of the series takes place. An added bonus is the short explanation at the end of the book of the history of theatre in the Middle Ages and other aspects of Medieval life together with a bibliography. A really informative and entertaining book.
