October, 1381. Brother Athelstan is summoned to Queenhithe to investigate the murder of a priest found stabbed to death inside his own locked church. He also discovers an empty coffin and a ransacked money chest. Who would commit murder inside a holy church? Who would spirit away a corpse the night before the funeral - and who would be brave enough to steal treasure belonging to the most feared gangleader in London?
