The Heretics of De'ath

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

Medieval mystery for people who laugh starts here....

Howard of Warwick thought, why not? Now 100,000 agree with him (sort of).

England 1066: At the monastery of De'Ath's Dingle, during a completely pointless theological debate, there is a mysterious death.

Routine business for the average investigative medieval monk.

Unfortunately this isn't a tale of average monks.

Anyone who would put the idiot Brother Simon in charge of a murder investigation is either one chant short of a plainsong, or is up to something.

When Brother Hermitage, innocent in every way, including bystanding, is lined up for execution, he begins to wonder if something might be going on. Perhaps his new companion Wat, weaver of pornographic tapestry, can figure out what it is. Before it's too late.

If you are a lover of the historical detective genre, if you have a deep respect for the worlds created, don't read this book. It'll only upset you.

Brother Hermitage's second case, The Garderobe of Death, is available on Kindle and things haven't improved.

Not knowing any better he even tries again in the new tale, The Tapestry of Death.

After that it gets completely out of control and books start appearing without rhyme or reason - particularly reason.

Your author turns his attention to the Battle of Hastings and what might have happened - but probably didn't, in The Domesday Book (No, Not That One)

Now available in a massive box set with The Garderobe of Death and The Tapestry of Death; for those with a lever-arch Kindle
