In the late autumn of 1380, Brother Athelstan is busy enough.

He and his parish council are preparing for the annual Christmas mystery play when a series of brutal murders occur at a Southwark tavern.

Two young whores are found slain. But their deaths are only the beginning of a series of gruesome killings which occur around the parish of St.

Brother Athelstan and Sir John Cranstone have to resolve not only these grizzly deaths but also their source - the Great Robbery of the Lombard treasure which occurred in Southwark some twenty years earlier...
