ISBN: - 978 0 7553 2882 6
Pages: - 314pp

Rating: - ***** **
One sentence summary:-
A rollicking good tale of Edwardian crime in Canterbury.

Describe the plot without giving anything away:- Sir Hugh Corbett is sent by Edward I to collect a map showing the location of a hidden treasure but a few murders get in the way.   Sir Hugh and his staff arrive at Canterbury to find that the owner of the map – and his family - have been hanged. A tangled web of deceit seems to point to the murderer harking back thirty years to an attack on a manor during riots in 1272.
