The Tenth Matthew Bartholomew Chronicle
in which the worst snows in living memory begin to melt and a long frozen
body is revealed.
In Cambridge 1355 the colleges of the fledgling university are as much
at odds with each other as they are with the ordinary townsfolk. This
tension has recently been heightened by the return of two well-born
murderers after receiving the Kings pardon, showing no remorse
but ready to confront those who helped convict them. And in the midst
of this Bartholomew the physician is called to the local mill to examine
two corpses. It is almost a relief to be able to turn his back on the
fractious town, but as always in Cambridge nothing is unconnected.
