The Chester Chasuble

(2019)
(Book 14 in the Chronicles of Brother Hermitage series)
A novel by

 
 
History, hilarity and some horrible goings on.

Howard of Warwick, the No 1 Best Selling author who brought you The Bayeux Embroidery, has fabricated yet another outing for the world's most medieval detective.

At the request of some rather peculiar monks, Brother Hermitage and his companions, Wat and Cwen the weavers, travel to Chester to try and work out who has suffocated a priest with his own chasuble.

They've even been recommended for this job by some very important people, but of course it starts to go wrong even before they arrive.

Chester appears to be full of some very strange people and some even stranger religious institutions, all of whom detest one another with fervour. There are Saxon Nobles who have run away from the Normans and townsfolk for whom corruption is what they do best.

Brother Hermitage must find out if the man who got killed is all he seems to be. Then there's a number of reasons why he could have been killed. And the list of who could have done it is a bit too long, even for Hermitage, who likes a list.

Why does Brother Merle seem so keen on dead people?
Who is the mysterious monk in the tower?
How many Saxons does it take to change a kingdom?

Be warned, Howard of Warwick has history:
