An intriguing medieval mystery featuring sleuthing monk Brother
Athelstan February, 1381. A ruthless killer known as the Ignifer -
Fire Bringer - is rampaging through London, bringing agonising
death and destruction in his wake. He appears to be targeting all
those involved in the recent trial and conviction of the beautiful
Lady Isolda Beaumont, burned at the stake for the murder of her
husband. As the late Sir Walter Beaumont was a close friend of the
Regent, John of Gaunt orders Sir John Cranston and Brother
Athelstan to investigate. In the dead man's possession was a copy
of the mysterious 'Book of Fires', containing the secret formula of
a devastating weapon, the so-called Greek Fire. The manuscript has
since disappeared, and Gaunt is desperate for it not to fall into
the hands of the Upright Men, who are busy plotting the Great
Revolt. Was Isolda really guilty of murder? Who is the terrifying
Fire Bringer - and what does he want? Brother Athelstan is about to
tackle his most challenging, and potentially dangerous, case yet.
