Fifteenth in the Dame (Sister) Frevisse medieval mystery series.
"Summer 1450 -- Since the death of her husband, Anne Blakhall has carried on their shared business as a tailor and embroiderer in the heart of London. Rather than remarry as prosperous London widows usually do, she has taken a lover - David Weir, a foreign merchant who is secretly a Jew and therefore in constant deadly peril. Anne knows his secret, and both his life and hers will be forefeited if ever he is found out.
"Dame Frevisse of St. Frideswide's nunnery is in London to arrange for funeral vestments for her cousin's murdered husband, the Duke of Suffolk. But she is also charged with secretly recovering the gold the late duke sent out of England shortly before his death. Attempting to help her cousin, she encounters Anne, chosen to make the vestments, and David, who has returned the gold to England. But her duty and their love become more dangeous as a rebel army advances on London - and a murdered body is discovered in the crypt of a London church, mutilated with what a Franciscan friar of the Inquisition claims are Hebrew letters.
"Trapped by rebels, threatened by the Inquisition, Dame Frevisse learns secrets she does not want to know, and must find out not only who is guilty . . . but whether anyone at all is innocent."; 7" - 9" Tall
