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...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Superb. . . . Gregory again proves adept at weaving a plot complicated enough to be baffling but not so
intricate as to become confusing

* Publishers' Weekly Starred Review *
As in her previous chronicles, the author blends meticulous historical data into a well-paced, hard to put down story. This one is especially intriguing since every logical choice of culprit pans out until the last moment. A first-rate treat for mystery lovers! * Historical Novels Review *
Gregory's obvious command of period detail convincingly transports the reader to England in 1358...a very satisfactory addition to this series * San Francisco Book Review *
