The Sixteenth chronicle of Brother Cadfael

In the summer of 1143 two important visitors arrive at the abbey of St Peter and St Paul - one dead and one very much alive, and set to wreak havoc within the tiny Benedictine community.  

William of Lythwood, the visitor in the coffin, has come to be buried in the abbey's grounds, and it is the dedicated mission of his attendant Elave to carry out his masters final wish.  But Gerbert, the mighty prelate and guest of the Benedictines, remembers that William had been 'reproved for heretical views; , and so tries to block Elave's plea.

When a violent death ensues, Brother Cadfael is called once again from his herb garden to turn detective and solve the murder - but matters are complicated further by the marvellous treasure box in Elave's care. . .
