Pilgrimage of Death

A novel by

The year is 1386.

In a Southwark inn, a group of pilgrims on the road to Canterbury are challenged to a competition by the landlord.

Each will tell a story, and the teller of the best tale shall earn themselves a free meal on their return.

For Geoffrey Chaucer – soldier, spy, and poet – it is just the beginning.

Every time a story is told, its teller is soon found murdered… in the manner of which they had spoken of in their tale.

Together with the knight and the franklin, the three men alone deemed above suspicion, Chaucer attempts to piece together the strange and bloody trail.

But as Canterbury looms they seem no closer to uncovering the truth.

And any one of them could be next…

Will they uncover the terrifying mystery behind the murders?

Or will they also fall victim to the Pilgrimage of Death…?

‘Pilgrimage of Death’ is a chilling re-telling of Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’ with a murderous twist.
