As Chaucer's pilgrims shelter in the ruins of a church, the poor Priest narrates his mysterious tale. Young Philip Trumpington, the new Scawsby parish priest, finds that the old church harbours shocking secrets.
Years earlier, some Templars were massacred on the marshes, their attackers led by Romenal, a former Scawsby vicar.
Philip discovers the old church is haunted by 'The Watchers' and the villagers are scarred by a terrible curse.
An ancient evil must be resolved and reparation made.
But the price will be great...

The poorest of Doherty's many historical crime series.This does not really come off I'm afraid
Review by Neilsantos
Ok I tried another, this one was awful. He cheated, here I am trying to figure out the mystery about the haunting (oooooo), and what's the mystery? It's actually haunted! Well, that's no mystery. Feh, once you introduce the supernatural, you forfeit the ability to reason out a mystery. It's the same shabby behaviour that made me hate Vanilla Sky
