The Holy Thief (Paperback)

Ellis Peters


At the height of the hot summer of 1144, the Earl of Essex succumbs to a fatal arrow - but only after a lingering fever during which his officials do their best to save him from hellfire by restoring various properties he has annexed, including the abbey of Ramsey. The abbey is in such a sorry state that a call for help in restoring it goes out to all houses of the Benedictine Order. But when heavy rains bring the threat of floods to Shrewsbury, and the holy relics must be removed to a place of safety, the subsiding waters reveal a robbery has been committed. So the stage is set for the masterly sleuthing skills of Brother Cadfael to be employed. But before the case is solved, to the crime of theft is added murder...
