Présentation de l'éditeur
In the early summer of 1379 in London, Sir John Cranston, Coroner of the city, is trapped into a wager with Signior Gian Galeazzo, Lord of Cremona, who challenges him to resolve a certain murder mystery within two weeks. Men have been found dead in the scarlet chamber of one of Cremona's manors. They have no mark upon them; they have neither drunk nor eaten poison; there are no secret passageways or entrances to the room. And they all have awful expressions of terror upon their faces.
Realising that his reputation and future wealth now rest upon the solving of this mystery, Cranston seeks the help of his faithful secretarius Brother Athelstan.

Sir John Cranston, coroner of London, while at a diplomatic banquet is challenged by the powerful John of Gaunt to solve a murder mystery in the space of two weeks. Regretting his actions almost immediately Sir John turns to his friend and secretary Brother Athelstan.
Athelstan cannot however give the mystery his full attention as renovation work at St. Erconwald's has unearthed a skeleton, but who was the skeleton and when did they die? There is also the question of whether Athelstan's friend and secret love Benedicta is really the widow she believes herself to be. With his parishioners constantly squabbling amongst themselves it would seem that Brother Athelstan is in for a busy time.
