Twentieth in the Brother Cadfael medieval mystery series.
"A November filled with golden sunshine seemed a gentle ending to this year 1145, although England remained torn between Empress Maud and those who pledged allegiance to her cousin, Stephen. Yet for Brother Cadfael, this sweet autumn would bring a bitter harvest: a sudden, wrenching break with his life, an urgent search for a hostage of war, and a hunt for a murderer.
"News had come to Shrewsbury of a terrible betrayal. Philip FitzRobert, one of Maud's greatest champions, had turned coat, imprisoning thirty knights and squires who held true to the empress. The lucky ones had kin who could afford the dear price for their freedom; the others had to rot in captivity. Among the missing and unclaimed was Olivier de Bretagne, an exceptional knight whose sire, unknown to Olivier himself, was Brother Cadfael.
"It had happened durint the Crusades, years before Cadfael had become a monk Indeed, Cadfael did not know until by chance he met Olivier. But the bond is strong and the one claim that can make Cadfael break his vows and drive him from his cloister, risking the religious way of life he so loves. The monk travels to Coventry where he finds Olivier's hotheaded young brother-in-law Yves, who is also searching for the missing knoight. And he comes, too, upon the brutal murder of a renegade lord. Soon Cadfael has a double quest . . . to save Yves from deadly danger and to find the dungeon where his secret son, and final penance, are waiting. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall

Corners slightly bumped, jacket shows slight edge wear.

"18-year-old Annet Beck has a haunting, innocent beauty few can forget. There isn't a man in her small Shropshire village who hasn't once fallen in love with her. Small wonder her aged parents keep their only daughter on a short leash, screening her escorts to the local dances and encouraging her interest in singing with the church choir.
One ordinary Thursday, just before teatime, Annet goes out to mail a letter . . . and doesn't return. Tom Kenyon, a young schoolmaster who boards with the Becks,saw her disappear over the Hallowmount -- a nearby hill local legends claim to be inhabited by witches.
After an agonizing five-day disappearance, Annet returns . . . and insists that she has only been gone for two hours! Why would she lie? Who could be expected to believe such a preposterous claim? When witnesses identify her as having been lurking near the site of a murder in Birmingham, her silence takes on the overtones of a cover-up . . . but who is she trying to protect?
Kenyon hopes that his friendship with the frightened young woman will help her face the truth, as Inspector George Felse delves into the bewildering facts behind the enigmatic events."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

"Winter arrived early in 1142, bringing with it a heavy snowfall. The safety of the guest-hall roof at the Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul comes into jeopardy, and the brothers are called upon to effect repairs.
But the icy and treacherous conditions are to prove near fatal for Brother Haluin. He slips from the roof and crashes to the ground, sustaining terrible injuries - grave enough for him to want to make his deathbed confession. . .
The confession is heard by the Abbot and Brother Cadfael, a wicked story, of trespasses hard for God or man to forgive.
But Haluin does not die. On his recovery, he determines to make a journey of expiation, with Cadfael as his sole companion. It is an arduous journey, physically and emotionally, and one that leads to shocking discoveries: of young lovers thwarted; of deceit and betrayal; of bitter revenge. . . and of murder.
Once again, Brother Cadfael must abandon his herbiary and turn detective."; 5¾" - 6¾" Tall

Meriet, meek by day, is so racked by dreams at night that his howls earn him the nickname the Devil's Novice. Shunned and feared, Meriet is soon linked to the missing priest's dreadful fate. Only Brother Cadfael believes in Meriet's innocence, and only the good sleuth can uncover the truth before a boy's pure passion, not evil intent, leads a novice to the noose.

"In the chill, rainy autumn of 1144, two groups of visitors seek the hospitality of the Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul, and Brother Cadfael fears trouble has come in with them. Among the first arrivals is Brother Tutilo, a young Benedictine with a guileless face and - to Brother Cadfael’s shrew eyes - a mischievous intelligence. The second group, a ribald French troubadour, his servant, and a girl with the voice of an angel, seems to Brother Cadfael a catalyst for disaster.
"All of Cadfael’s fears become manifest as rising flood waters endanger the abbey’s most sacred relic, the remains of St. Winifred. When the bones disappear and a dead body is found, Brother Cadfael knows carnal and spiritual intrigues are afoot.
"Now, in a world that believes in signs and miracles, Brother Cadfael needs his prayers answered - as well as some heavenly guidance to crucial clues - to catch a killer hell-bent on murder. "; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
