As night sets in, Chaucer's weary pilgrims find themselves in a Kent copse, rumored to be haunted.  Huddling around the fire, they persuade the Clerk of Oxford to tell a ghostly tale of love and death will further chill their blood... It's May Day 1381, and Beatrice Arrowner is on her way to Ravenscroft Castle to share in the feasting with the clerk, Ralph Mortimer.  But the sinister events of the last few days soon cast a cloud over the festivities.  Phoebe, a castle maid, has been murdered and Fulk, the local miller's son, has disappeared.  So when another guest at Raavenscroft is found murdered, it seems that the evil spirits which haunt the Midnight Tower are doing their worst. Certain that there's a connection between these events and his search for the legendary Brythnoth's jewelled cross, Ralph knows that his own life may be in danger...  Rich in historical detail, A Haunt of Murder is a historical mystery that only historian and acclaimed author P.C. Dougherty could write.
