Summary (From the publisher):

May 1195, and Sir John de Wolfe is summoned at dawn to inspect a corpse which has been discovered in Exeter's cathedral precinct, only a few hundred paces from his own doorstep.

Aaron of Salisbury, a Jewish money-lender, has been found dead, his head enveloped in a brown leather money-bag, a scrap of folded parchment clutched in his fingers. On it is written : "And Jesus went into the temple... and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers."

This is just the start of a strange series of murders in which an appropriate biblical text is left at the scene of the crime. Setting out to track down a literate and Bible-learned killer in an age when only one per cent of the population can read or write, Sir John deduces that he is looking for a homicidal priest.

But with at least twenty-five parish churches in Exeter, the killer could be any one of more than a hundred clerics...
