Summary (From the publisher):

On St Scholastica's Day in February 1355, Oxford explodes in one of the most serious riots in its turbulent history. Fearing for their lives, the scholers flee the city, and some choose to travel to Cambridge, beliving that the killer of one of their colleagues is to be found in the rival university town. But within hours of their arrival the first of their number dies, followed quickly by a second.

Brother Michael, furious that anyone should presume to trespass on his territory searching for a killer, is dismissive of their insistance that Cambridge is harbouring a murderer.He is irked, too, by the fact that Matthew Bartholomew, his corspe investigator, appears to be wholly distracted by the charms of the town's leading prostitute.

Then it becomes clear that the Oxford riot was not a case of random violence, but part of a carefully orchestrated plot, one that threates to explode during the imminent vistation of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
