In a mild December in the year of our Lord 1141, a new priest comes to the parishoners of the Foregate outside the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. Father Ailnoth brings with him a housekeeper and her nephew- and a disposition that invites murder. Brother Cadfael quickly sees that Father Ailnoth is a harsh man who behaves like a doom-saying raven. The housekeeper's nephew, Benet, is quite different, a smiling lad, a hard worker in Cadfael's herb garden but, as Brother Cadfael soon discovers, an impostor. And when Ailnoth is found drowned, suspicion falls on Benet, though many in the Foregate had cause to want the priest dead. Now Brother Cadfael is gathering clues along with his medicinals to treat a case of unholy passions, tragic politics, and perhaps divine intervention.

Promotional Information

In the twelfth chronicle Brother Cadfael finds a young man working in the Abbey's herb garden is suspected of murder.

The death of a man no-one likes brings stresses to the inhabitants of Shrewsbury, both in the Abbey and the township. Brother Cadfael however pursues the mystery to its end, in the process helping a pair of young lovers, who follow the (current) loser in the battle to rule England, Empress Maud, rather than King Stephen, who is again on the ascendant.
