Fresh from the lectern comes a new look at the Bayeux Tapestry; it’s a look from behind the curtains and mostly in the dark.

Nonetheless a tale unfolds.

The nuns of Kent have been commissioned by Earl Odo to create a great tapestry telling the glorious history of the Norman conquest of Britain. But when they start dying, one man must be sent for; Brother Hermitage, the King’s Investigator.

It’s the lucky 13th Chronicle of Brother Hermitage

The man who barely survives his own investigations.

The sleuth who seldom asks anyone the right questions.

The monk who is firmly medieval and slightly detective.
