(From the publisher):
Oxford University in 1264 is an oasis of peace in an England wracked with power struggles, until the savage murder of a young girl kindles a blaze of hostility between the impoverished townspeople and privileged students. Philosopher Regent Master William Falconer, with his sharp eye for human foibles and his relentlessly logical mind, soon discovers dangerous secrets that will entangle him in a world of heresy, politics, and ferocious violence.
