The Case of the Cantankerous Carcass

(The ninth book in the Chronicles of Brother Hermitage series)
A novel by

How is a medieval monk supposed to investigate a death if the corpse keeps complaining all the time?

Once more Brother Hermitage toils to avoid his duties as King's Investigator, and fails miserably. But this time it's personal.

When his beloved old Abbot arrives at Wat the Weaver's workshop asking for his aid, Hermitage cannot refuse. He only has one beloved old Abbot, after all. But this one comes with a web made by specially tangled spiders.

There are Normans involved of course, so far so normal. Add a monastery that no monk of sense would go anywhere near and a village of pagans whose answer to every problem is to set light to it and Brother Hermitage is out of his depth almost immediately.

Wat and Cwen the weavers bring some common sense to the situation, but there isn't much of that to begin with.

It's medieval crime with all of the normal human failings - and a few new ones as well.
