The Field of Blood
by Paul Doherty
A murder close to home leaves Athelstan with his most dangerous case yet…
After the discovery of three savagely murdered bodies in his parish, Brother Athelstan finds himself involved in the hunt for a dangerous killer.
It is clear that two of the victims, a whore and a preacher, surprised an assassin who was then forced to kill them.
But who the third victim is, and why someone has gone to so much trouble to kill him, remains a mystery. And can it really have any connection with Sir John Cranston’s attempt to save a women unjustly accused of stabbing a clerk?
Brother Athelstan returns in the ninth exciting mystery thriller in Paul Doherty’s brilliant series, perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, E. M. Powell and Rory Clements.
