The Lady Chapel
by Candace Robb

A blood-curdling murder in the minster grounds proves to be a difficult case for Owen Archer when a young witness goes missing.

York, 1365
. The Corpus Christi Day pageant is winding down when Owen Archer is summoned to see John Thoresby, Archbishop of York. Wool merchant Will Crounce has been violently murdered – his throat slit and his right hand cut off. Terrified eight-year-old, Jasper de Melton, saw it all – including the woman in a hooded cloak who led Crounce to his death.


The archbishop wants Owen to speak to Gilbert Ridley, a fellow mercer who was seen arguing with Will the night he died. But when Ridley dines with the archbishop in recognition of his generous gift to the minster’s Lady Chapel, a terrible event follows.


Where are the mysterious woman and young Jasper? As Owen attempts to unlock the mystery, he uncovers a deadly conspiracy that leads to the upper echelons of power.
