A Murder for Mistress Cwen
Works of: Fiction
For a medieval monk who hates investigating anything, Brother Hermitage seems to do it quite a lot. As he stumbles into his 10th full-length tale, signs of improvement remain stubbornly invisible.
When Stigand of Arundel arrives in Derby with a commission from King William to buy some very expensive hawks, Wat, Weaver of adult tapestry sees an opportunity for profit. Brother Hermitage sees only trouble.
We then discover that Cwen, fine young tapestrier with a good eye for colour, nimble fingers and a frightening temper, also has some very peculiar relatives. So peculiar that they warrant investigation in their own right.
Once more there is murder and of course, there are Normans and Vikings and Saxons. If any of them actually has a clue what’s going on they’re not saying anything.
In his previous debacles, Brother Hermitage relied on Wat and Cwen for guidance, support and frequent reminders to use some common sense. This time they’re all up to their eyes in it but surely things can’t go any worse?
Medieval Crime Comedy is not going away and Howard of Warwick doesn’t know any better…
