Alys Clare aka Elizabeth Harris has written thirteen mysteries featuring the Abbess Helewise of Hawkenlye Abbey and Josse d’Acquin.
Before travelling to England to assume the throne, Richard I decides to release all criminals from jail – to make himself popular, apparently. When a nun is brutally murdered in Kent, he sends Josse D’Acquin to help Abbess Helewise find the culprit.
Just as Sir Josse returns to the area, Helewise trips over a dead body on the edge of the nearby forest, murdered under a full moon. Cue rumours of the forest folk and nightly trips into the woods by a pair of women from the abbey with secrets to hide.What is hidden in the forest that is worth killing for?
