England, 1324a land rife with superstition and gripped by fear of the Churchs holy wrath. When a beggar is murdered in the quiet village of Bottesford, his body draped across the altar of St. Marys church in a perverse pose of pagan sacrifice, the Popes Inquisitor General places the small hamlet in his sights.
Anxious to stave off the Inquisition, the Bishop of Lincoln dispatches Thomas Lester, son of a disgraced Templar Knight, to investigatebut the Archbishops fanatical emissary has already arrived to conduct his own inquiry. Thomass investigation uncovers a vipers nest of perfidious players: the secretive wife of the local lord, a notorious Irishwoman accused of witchcraft, and a depraved chaplain who has left a trail of murder and blackmail in his wake. As this sordid drama unfolds, Thomas finds himself falling in love with a woman whose beauty is matched only by her defiance of the Churchs fearsome power.
Is the killer poised to strike again? Will the Inquisition bring its hammer down on the hapless hamlet? And could there be areal witch hiding in plain sight? The race is on to conjure the truth.
