"In the Spring of 1277, Prioress Eleanor goes on a pilgrimage to a famous East Anglian shrine. There are rumors that King Edward may also visit the shrine soon to seek God's blessing for his invasion of Wales. Lurking in this sacred place, however, is an assassin hoping to murder a king. Soon after Prioress Eleanor and Brother Thomas arrive, a nun falls to her death from the priory bell tower. Brother Thomas finds the body, and the pair quickly grasp that this nun's death was not a simple tragedy. The circumstances point to murder, but this slaying is further tainted with treason. Among the pilgrims, merchants, and religious, too many betray an interest in this death-including a canny street child. At least one of them is most certainly a killer. Can Prioress Eleanor and Brother Thomas succeed in exposing the assassin or will they also fall victim to one who has made a covenant with hell?"--Jacket.

Prioress Eleanor has decided that a pilgrimage might be the antidote to people telling her how holy she is after seeing a vision at the end of the last book. There's a spy lurking and tempting Brother Thomas back to his previous life and a precocious street girl, both of whom help to solve the mystery and leave intimations of participation in further adventures. Again there are applications to the modern world, which keeps the book believable and grounded in human nature which really doesn't change much over the centuries.
