A Newly Crimsoned Reliquary, The Monastery Murders #4

By Donna Fletcher Crow


Who will be the next victim of the murderer stalking the shadows of Oxford's hallowed shrines? Translating an ancient document in an Oxford convent should be a harmless venture, but Felicity just can't seem to avoid danger. It's hardly Felicity's fault that severed body parts start showing up in ancient holy reliquaries. Or that Felicity and one of the nuns is assaulted. Felicity’s curiosity leads her to wonder why the nuns are in danger. Or why an ancient document would appear to be at the heart of the matter. Her expertise is called upon, and she quickly realizes that there is a lot at stake when others stand to gain, from what at first glance, appears to be a minor point of law, long forgotten. Her life is made busier when Antony arrives in Oxford with a group of students. Although she’s happy to see him, he is surprised that Felicity has forged an uneasy friendship with his estranged sister. Then Antony is called home when an uncle dies, Antony realizes that hurt feelings must be laid to rest if his relationship with his sister is to improve. Left alone at the convent, the exultation of All Saints' Day plunges to the anguish of grief on All Souls', when Felicity discovers yet another body, forcing her to ask: Who will be the next victim of the murderer stalking the shadows of Oxford's hallowed shrines?
