Elegy to Murder

By Priscilla Royal

May 1283. The roads near Tyndal Priory are filled with joyful pilgrims, but not all is happy in the village and priory. Signy, the innkeeper, is quarreling with her suddenly rebellious foster son. Gytha, Crowner Ralf’s wife, is in failing health, but her hisband is hunting smugglers on the remote East Anglian coast. Brother Thomas remains aloof and depressed after the events in the last book. But Prioress Eleanor cannot offer sympathy or guidance because a pilgrim is murdered near her priory walls. Although she has no authority to investigate, she knows the killer could vanish into the crowds before the crowner can return. Will she fail to catch the murderer? Will this be the first time she cannot bring a killer to justice?
