MEDIEVAL MYSTERY: On a remote East Anglian coast stands Tyndal Priory, home to a rare monastic order where men and women live and work together in close proximity. Twenty-year-old Eleanor of Wynethorpe has been appointed prioress by Henry III over the elected choice of the priory itself. Young and inexperienced, Eleanor will face a grave struggle – in a place dedicated to love and peace, she will find little of either.

JUSTICE FOR THE DAMNED: May 1272: Recovering from a near-fatal winter fever, Eleanor visits her aunt at Amesbury Priory, who asks her to investigate a ghost people claim is haunting Amesbury. When a local man is found beheaded, Eleanor realizes she's dealing with a human killer, not an otherworldly spirit and strives to unravel the truth from the rumours, lies and foiled passions of the townsfolk and the nuns and monks of the priory alike. And strive she must, for Death's scythe is still sharp and its harvest is far from over.

Priscilla Royal was born in Seattle, grew up in British Columbia and now lives in Northern California. She has a degree in world literature from San Francisco State University and is the author of nine books in the Medieval Mysteries series.

MEDIEVAL MYSTERIES. On a remote East Anglian coast stands Tyndal Priory, which belongs to the Order of Fontevraud, a rare 'double house' where monks and nuns live and work in close proximity. Outside its cloisters, England smoulders in the waning years of Henry III's (1207-1272) reign. Simon de Montfort's rebellion has been put down but a pall of unrest still hangs over the land like smoke. The Wynethorpe family sided with the king during the rebellion and as a reward for their loyal service, twenty-year-old Eleanor of Wynethorpe has been appointed prioress of Tyndal Priory. Eleanor's arrival is resented by the nuns and monks – they had already elected their own candidate for the position. Young and inexperienced, Eleanor will face a grave struggle – in a place dedicated to love and peace, she will find little of either.


'Intriguing plot, chilling conclusion and all the potential to evolve into a series as enduring as Ellis Peters' Publishers Weekly

'Anyone who hasn't read Priscilla Royal's mysteries yet is in for a treat' Sharon Kay Penman

'A superior historical' Publishers Weekly
