The Devil's Monk : A 19th Century British Mystery Paperback

Part of the A Thomas Potts Historical Mystery series

Description

An intriguing 19th Century historical mystery. July, 1829. When a female corpse, dressed in male clothing, is discovered lying in a haystack in the Worcestershire countryside, rumour and superstition abound.

For the sighting of a man in white robes fleeing from the scene leads to suspicion that the 'Devil's Monk' is responsible for the crime.

According to local legend, this vengeful apparition appears at intervals to molest and kill. Constable Thomas Potts is dismissive of the rumours - but without knowing the victim's identity, he'll need the devil's own luck to catch her killer. And when a second body turns up, Potts is under pressure to track down the murderer before hysteria engulfs the town.
