The Easter Sepulchre



'Sir Hugh is in top form tracking down the wily killer of local clerics while eating his way through a feast of mediaeval dishes. A delightful mystery with an authentic historical touch.' Fiona Veitch Smith, author and scriptwriter

'Time-travel from the safety of your armchair - with a murderous twist. Mel Starr's eagerly awaited new Hugh de Singleton medieval mystery doesn't disappoint his fans. Join everyone's favourite physician-cum-bailiff as he endeavours to solve more dire fourteenth-century crimes. ' Toni Mount, author of the Sebastian Foxley murder mystery series

Keeping watch over the Easter Sepulchre, where the Host and crucifix are stored between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, is considered a privilege. So, it is shocking when it is discovered that Odo, the priest’s clerk, has abandoned his post in the middle of the night.

But as the hours pass and Odo is not found, panic rises. At first light Bampton's bailiff, Hugh de Singleton, is roused from his bed.

It is Hugh that ingeniously finds the clue that leads all to fear for the life of the missing man… The question is, will Hugh be called to investigate another murder, or will he find the man hale and hearty? But if the latter, where has the blood come from?
