A Summer of Discontent : The Eighth Matthew Bartholomew Chronicle Paperback

Part of the Chronicles of Matthew Bartholomew series

Description

It's August, 1354, and physician-monk Matthew Bartholomew jumps at the chance to travel to Ely with his friend and colleague Brother Michael, as it will give him a unique opportunity to study in the richly stocked library of the Benedictine priory.

Michael has been summoned to the city by his bishop, but it isn't until they arrive that they discover the reason - the bishop has been accused of murder.

The charge seems ludicrous, but Michael takes the investigation seriously and energetically sets about his task.

At the same time Bartholomew comes across an underground movement of rebellion against the church and the tithes they demand from the laity, and the two men also learn that there has been a spate of burglaries which are being blamed on a band of travellers.

Then a fellow of the priory is murdered almost under their noses.

Can this death be connected to the others? Are all the killings linked to the burgeoning rebellion in the city?
