Sixteenth in the Dame (Sister) Frevisse medieval mystery series.
"Dame Frevisse of St. Frideswide's is summoned from her nunnery to aid her cousin, the widowed duchess of Suffolk, during the dangerous aftermath of the duke's murder - a man so hated that his funeral must be kept private.
The sometimes-player Joliffe, now a spy for the exiled duke of York, has uncovered a secret that could ruin the duchess. The proof, though, is contained in a letter someone else is also searching for - over dead men's bodies. When Frevisse is forced to help Joliffe seek the fatral missive, she does not know if doing so will save her cousin or ruin her . . . And condemn more men to their death. "
