How Many Monks?
Not content with being King William’s investigator of murder, and he is not content with that at all, Brother Hermitage is now having his trouble delivered. The floods of Derby wash up something very specific and there is only one monk for the job.
But who would do that to an abbot? And where did he come from? Not only will Hermitage have to discover a killer, he’ll also have to find a monastery where there is none.
Perhaps some detestable monks will be able to throw light on the situation.
Could the Norman obsession with record-keeping turn out to be useful?
At least this murder is only a short walk away, and Hermitage, Wat and Cwen traipse through a soggy countryside to discover more about monks and monasteries than the weavers ever wanted to know.
The 30th – yes 30th Chronicle of Brother Hermitage continues the theme of a medieval detective monk who really shouldn’t be.
