Summary
Sister Hildegard has established a minor religious cell in quiet Deepdale, but the tranquility of her new community is disturbed when mysterious armed men attack two guests, Maud and Petronilla ("little more than children"), who avoid death only by chance. Maud, fearing that the men were seeking her, reveals that she escaped some marauders who destroyed her home and slaughtered her five-year-old brother. Hildegard and the girls seek safety in York, where Hildegard gets entangled in murderous intrigue involving the Cross of Constantine, which she found in Turnshoe

Summary
Summer, 1384. The sun is hot and high - but storm-clouds of insurrection are gathering over England. Hildegard of Meaux - sleuth, spy and now an abbess of the powerful Cistercian order - has found refuge from a world of violence and blood-feud at her new home in Yorkshire. But by taking a bonded maid into the fold, Hildegard has made a dangerous enemy, an enemy who thinks nothing of destroying her little sanctuary to further his own ends. Meanwhile her own history, and her possession of a priceless relic, threatens to drag her into the schemes of traitors to the crown who seek to overthrow King Richard II - including the ruthless Henry Bolingbroke. And with portents in York that the end of days is imminent; signs expressed by death in fire, can even the resourceful Hildegard unweave the tangled skein of conspiracy?
