An excellent entry into this series, which is easily one of the top historical ecclesiastical series around. Intelligent, well plotted, beautifully researched and presented, always with an interesting cast of characters and a new facet of the times presented. Sister Frevisse and the prioress travel to conduct priory business only to arrive at St. Mary's nunnery in time to discover a much disliked local bureaucrat has been murdered and no one, including his wife and his clerk, seems particularly upset by his demise.
