IT HAD SEEMED SO SIMPLE...

Were Stephen and Catheryn married? They said yes. Their parents said no. But if they'd said their vows, then the vows were binding and there was nothing to be done. If they hadn't, then their parents could take matters into their own hands. Of course, people often failed to think through what they did or said. Words fell out of their mouths and they went happily along their way, supposing the words meant whatever they'd wanted to say (or to hear).

But once he knew the words, it would all be so simple to resolve.

... Things were rarely that simple.

Ripped from the pages of the Edgar-nominated Sister Frevisse and Player Joliffe series, Margaret Frazer's Bishop Beaufort sees his holy court drenched with the tears and blood of a tale told in passion, sealed with murder, and spiced with the deadliest sin of all: Greed.

Meet the Author

Margaret Frazer is the award-winning author of more than twenty historical murder mysteries and novels. She makes her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, surrounded by her books, but she lives her life in the 1400s. In writing her Edgar-nominated Sister Frevisse (<em>The Novice's Tale</em>) and Player Joliffe (<em>A Play of Isaac</em>) novels she delves far inside medieval perceptions, seeking to look at medieval England more from its point of view than ours. "Because the pleasure of going thoroughly into otherwhen as well as otherwhere is one of the great pleasures in reading."
