The Boy Bishop's Glovemaker

The Boy-Bishop's Glovemaker - Canelo edition

No rest for the wicked, not even at Christmas...

For Sir Baldwin Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, and Bailiff Simon Puttock, Christmas 1321 is set to be marvellous. They are to receive the prestigious gloves of honour in a ceremony led by the specially elected Boy-Bishop.

But they soon learn that Ralph - the glovemaker - has been stabbed to death. Then Peter, a Secondary at the cathedral, collapses from poisoning.

Simon and Baldwin must solve the riddles surrounding the deaths, but as they dig for the truth they find that many of Exeter's leading citizens are not what they seem to be...

"A welcome addition to Jecks's successful medieval mysteries."

Publishers' Weekly

"... it's as much a series of character studies as it is an absorbing mystery and a fascinating study of medieval life..."
