Summary (From the publisher):

When a young nun from Hawkenlye Abbey is discovered in a nearby vale with her throat cut, the people of Tonbridge are quick to jump to conclusions. This brutal murder must be the work of some felon released by King Richard Plantagenet in an attempt to impress his new subjects with his charity. Richard sends his emissary, Josse d'Acquin, to investigate the gruesome death, with the unspoken order to absolve the king from all blame.

Josse, a brave and loyal ex-soldier, discovers an intelligent ally in Abbess Helewise of Hawkenlye: level-headed and pragmatic, she rarely misses a trick. Combining their talents, Josse and the Abbess peel back the orderly façade of life in rural Kent, to discover the menace lurking beneath.
