Synopsis

On St Scholastica’s Day in February 1355, Oxford explodes in one of the most serious riots of its turbulent history. Fearing for their lives, the scholars flee the city, and some choose the University at Cambridge as their temporary refuge. However, they don’t remain safe for long. Within hours of their arrival, the first of their number dies, followed quickly by a second.When Bartholomew and Brother Michael begin to investigate the deaths, they uncover evidence that the Oxford riot was not a case of random violence, but part of a carefully orchestrated plot. With the Archbishop of Canterbury about to honour Cambridge with a Visitation, and a close colleague accused of a series of murders Bartholomew is certain he didn’t commit, the race is on to solve the riddles and bring a ruthless killer to justice.

Forget 21st-century collegiate football rivalries. The 14th century offers conflicts between Cambridge University and its older rival, Oxford, violent tensions between town and gown in both cities and a bizarre series of murders, all without benefit of televised sports.
