Summer, 1584. A young woman from Bruno's past comes to Bruno for help after being accused of murdering her husband, a prominent magistrate in Canterbury. But when Bruno arrives in Canterbury, he has no idea of the dark secrets he's about to uncover. He must turn his detective's eye on history-- on Saint Thomas Becket, the twelfth-century archbishop murdered in Canterbury Cathedral, and on the legend surrounding the disappearance of his body-- in order to solve the crime.

What a great series, I've enjoyed every book so far and this one was a good read too. With interesting main and supporting characters, plot, setting, what more do you need. I look forward to the next one.

Wonderful period writing, but much too slow in pace.
