Murder On The Canterbury Pilgrimage by Mary Devlin
Who murdered the gypsy temptress? Why is a sneak thief disrupting the journey to a holy shrine? Poet Geoffrey Chaucer must find out--or hang!
A medieval mystery in the tradition of Ellis Peters and Edward Marston, Murder on the Canterbury Pilgrimage casts noted poet Geoffrey Chaucer in the role of detective. Chaucer uses his keen insights into human nature, his experience as a spy, and his skills as an astrologer to track down who murdered the beautiful gypsy, Sophia, while on the road to the shrine of St. Thomas a Becket at Canterbury. He enlists the aid of his fellow pilgrims--one of whom must be the murderer!
