Overview

Templar Bascot de Marins is preparing to rejoin the Holy Wars when he is called upon to investigate a gruesome murder in the Order's own chapel...

The shocking discovery of a strangled prostitute in the Templar chapel throws the Order into disarray. Alongside the corpse is a purse containing thirty pence-the same amount of silver Judas received for betraying Christ.

Is the murder revenge for a Templar brother's betrayal? Has one of their own broken his vow of chastity? The Order's preceptor turns to Bascot to determine whether an outsider is seeking to dishonour the Templars or a murderer walks among their ranks.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When the strangled body of a young woman turns up in a Templar chapel, hidden in a garment chest, near the outset of Ash's gripping fourth Templar Knight mystery (after 2009's Murder for Christ's Mass), Sir Bascot de Marins and the sheriff of Lincoln investigate. By committing such an abominable crime, the killer evidently meant to defile not just a chapel but a Templar one in particular. The Templar knight and the sheriff soon discover the victim was a prostitute. When a second prostitute is likewise garroted, the murderer carves a familiar emblem into her left breast: the cross pattée of the Templar Order. The rules of obedience and secrecy Sir Bascot has sworn to the Templar Order test the loyalties of the knight, who's not bound by the king's law. Ash paints a lively picture of early 13th-century Lincolnshire society. (Oct.)

    Readers obtain a rare and fascinating look into the workings of the Templar Knights Chapter House

    Two years ago in the year 1200, Templar Sir Bascot de Marins returned to England after escaping the Saracens who held him prisoner in the Holy Land for eight years. Unable to return to active duties as a Templar due to a crisis of faith and battle fatigue, he entered into the service of Nicolaa de la Haye. Now he looks forward to his deployment to Portugal to fight the Moors.

    In the Lincoln Preceptory, the Templars house where Bascot is assigned, the entire group is shocked when the body of a dead prostitute is found in a larger wooden chest. Next to the corpse is thirty pieces of silver. The preceptor Everard D'Arderon refuses to let the men leave for Portugal until it can be proven no Templar is a murderer. Everard assigns Bascot to investigate the Templars as a starting point. His inquiries lead to two separate families and if he can figure out what links them he will learn out who the murderer is and what he has against prostitutes and Templars.

    Readers obtain a rare and fascinating look into the workings of the Templar Knights Chapter House; this provides insight into their community and how they live. Bascot is bone marrow weary and a doubter, but adheres strictly to his oaths. Readers who enjoy the medieval works of Sharon Kay Penman and Roberta Gillis will appreciate Maureen Ash's skilful rendition of life in the year 1202.
