The Investigator’s Wedding
From the No 1 best selling author of innumerable medieval murders comes… a wedding.
Unfortunately, some weddings can also be murder.
Wat and Cwen, both weavers of tapestry for the very strong of heart are to marry. Brother Hermitage, the King’s Investigator will be chief witness and so warnings are issued; there is to be no suspicious death ruining the big day.
But no one told the Normans. Lord Walter d’Aincourt has been given Derby by King William and he is going to take it, wedding or not. In fact, he’ll help himself to anything else that takes his eye – or send some large Normans on horses to take it for him.
If the wedding doesn’t go quite as planned, things aren’t much better in the Norman camp. One soldier ends up with a tent pole where there shouldn’t be one, and it’s business as usual for Brother Hermitage. He should be used to being accused of murder by now.
However, there’s enough conflict between the Normans themselves for several decent suspects.
All this situation needs is a reasoned approach, careful analysis, a well-constructed argument and some sensible discussion.
Or a great big fight.
And that’s how wedding receptions were invented.
