They quickly discover that a great many other people in clare have recently met untimely deaths. These killings, combined with the arrogance lady de burgh has shown over the refurbishment of the church and the grotesque behaviour of some of her entourage, have created a dangerous restlessness in the town: an atmosphere intensified when yet more murders occur, a grave concern: identifying the murderer of the chancellor of the university is not the only challenge facing physician matthew bartholomew. Many of his patients have been made worse by the ministrations of a 'surgeon' recently arrived from nottingham, his sister is being rooked by the mason she has commissioned to build her husband's tomb, and his friend, brother michael, has been offered a bishopric which will cause him to leave cambridge, executioner of st pauls: amongst them, though, are those prepared to risk their health for money - those who sell dubious 'cures' and hawk food at wildly inflated prices. Also amongst them are those who hold in their hands the future of the city's most iconic building - st paul's cathedral.The handsome edifice is crumbling from decades of neglect and indecision, giving the current custodians a stark choice - repair or demolish. Both sides have fanatical adherents who have been fighting each other since the civil wars. Large sums of money have disappeared, major players have mysteriously vanished, and then a unidentified skeleton is discovered in another man's grave
