1 Frazer, Margaret The Clerk's Tale (Dame Frevisse Mystery #11)
New York Berkley Prime Crime 2002 0425187381 / 9780425187388 27th Edition; 1st Paperback printing Mass Market Paperback Very Good 
Illustrated by Madill, Warren (Cover)

Spine slightly slanted, slight creases, corners bumped, a little edge wear and rubbing. An attractive copy. ; 5" - 6" Tall; 312 pages;

"St. Mary's nunnery is a place of prayer and healing for women - so it is surprising to see a man sprawled out in the cloister garden. Dead. Less surprising, to Dame Frevisse, was the identity of the victim. Master Montfort was not particularly liked by anyone in the town of Goring - even his own wife and clerk. As royal escheator, he was trying to settle a heated inheritance dispute between a wealthy woman and her supposed nephew.
"Now Dame Frevisse must step in and untangle the fortunes and felonies in this complicated case of political and familial rivalries. But her real challenge is to put aside her feelings and serve justice for the murder of an unjust man. "

But Frevisse must divide her time between nursing and sleuthing after two villagers are brutally killed. As death casts a cloud over Prior Byfield, fear and suspicion reign - and Frevisse's keen deductions lead her closer to the disturbing truth . . . "

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

Who will see that justice is done after honest love and dishonest lust spawn anger, greed, and finally . . . murder? "
