Rumors of plague threaten Cambridge again, 10 years after the Black Death almost laid waste to the town. Neither the church nor its priests had defended people from the disease so now they turn elsewhere for protection, to pagan ritual and magical potions. It is a ripe atmosphere to be exploited by the mysterious Sorcerer, an anonymous magician whose increasing influence seems certain to oust both civil and church leaders from power. One murder, another unexplained death, a font filled with blood, a desecrated grave--all bear the hallmarks of the Sorcerer's hand, only the identity of the magician remains a mystery. A mystery which Matthew Bartholomew must solve before he loses his reputation ... and his life

In 1350, Cambridge lies ravaged by the Black Death. Crime flourishes too: three harlots are found with slit throats and branded feet, a friar dies rifling a strongbox full of college chronicles, and the Vice Chancellor of the University vanishes from his sick chamber with all its furnishings. Now the Chancellor calls on the deductive skill of Matthew Bartholomew, Master of Medicine. Busy enough already with the teaching and practice of new techniques, Bartholomew welcomes the investigative help of portly Brother Michael--a shrewd and merry monk, not unduly shocked by sins of the flesh. From an exotic poison to a surge of devil worship, from a grisly exhumation to a sweetheart's dying words, they are on a tangled and perilous trail of conspiracy and obsession

Matthew Bartholomew is among the small party which arrives in the bustling city, where the increasing wealth of the merchants is unsettling the established order, and where a French invasion is an ever-present threat to its port. But soon he and his colleagues learn that several of the Archbishop's executors have died in unexplained circumstances and that the codicil naming Michaelhouse as a beneficiary cannot be found

"Webb took a series of shortcuts - he had been born in the slums known as the Fleet Rookery, and knew the city like the back of his hand - and emerged near Ludgate. His fine shoes rubbed his soaked feel and he begain to swear aloud, waking the beggars asleep under the Fleet bridge. His knees ached, too, as they often did in wet weather. He reached the Strand, limping heavily now, and heard the bells of St Martin-in-the-Fields announce six o'clock; they had been wrong ever since a new-fangled chiming mechanism had been installed three months before. He heaved a sigh of relief when he recognised mighty Somerset House and its fabulous clusters of chimneys."--DUST JACKET
