Lowly Death

(2011)
(A book in the Bishop Pecock Tales series)
A Novella by

 
A CUNNING AND CLEVER GREED...

Come down the Paternoster Passage, cross the church's yard, and knock on the doors of Master Whittington's Almshouse. Master Pecock, a man of the cloth and the greatest detective of 15th century London, will answer your call.

Just as he answers Dick Colop's call. The mother of young Colop's friend has slipped, fallen, and died. But something doesn't feel right about it. There's a strange uneasiness creeping at the back of Colop's mind.

And then there was the matter of the candle.

It was in the kitchen. A burned down stub of a candle. It had rolled under a table. And left a thick splattering of wax on the floor a foot or so away.

That was enough. Master Pecock was on the scent. The scent of lies. The scent of wrongs. The scent of murder.
