From the publisher:
The winter of 1353 brings new confusion to the people of Cambridge. Torrential rains spread fever to the poor and make travelling hazardous along the town's outlaw-infested roads. Then three members of the University die by drinking poisened wine. Is this another collage conspiracy, or a new period of hostility between town and gown?
The bottles of poisen wine are circulating through knowing and innocent hands. Physician Matthew Bartholomew would rather not get involved in the investigation, but when his life is threatened he realises he has become a target for people who have more than robbery on their minds, and he stumbles upon criminal activities that not only implicate his relatives, friends and colleagues, but also mix commercial greed and academic intrigue into a deadly brew of evil intent...
