In 1360 a deputation from Cambridge ventures to the Suffolk town of
Clare in the hope that the wealthy Elizabeth de Burgh has left a
legacy to Michaelhouse. Yet when they arrive they discover that the
report of her death is false and that the college seems destined
for bankruptcy.Determined to see if some of its well-heeled
citizens can be persuaded to sponsor Michaelhouse, Matthew
Bartholomew, Brother Michael and Master Langelee become enmeshed in
the town's politics. They quickly discover that a great many other
people in Clare have recently met untimely deaths. These killings,
combined with the arrogance Lady de Burgh has shown over the
refurbishment of the church and the grotesque behaviour of some of
her entourage, have created a dangerous restlessness in the town:
an atmosphere intensified when yet more murders occur.One of the
victims is a fellow traveller of the Michaelhouse contingent, and
Matthew Bartholomew and Brother Michael feel honour-bound to
identify his killer. It is a hunt which takes them deep into
Clare's murky foundations and which threatens their own survival as
well as that of their beloved college.
