An Abbess of Meaux mystery

Blackwell North Amer
November, 1382. The month of the dead. A nun rides out for York and the Abbey of Meaux. It will be no ordinary journey. An uneasy peace reigns in the savage aftermath of the peasants' revolt. As Hildegard travels alone through the countryside, with only her two hounds for protection, she comes across a gibbet with five bloodied, crow-stripped corpses, and in the next clearing the body of a young man, brutally butchered. Who is he? And what is his connection with the hanged men?
But murder will touch Hildegard even more closely. Her childhood home, Castle Hutton, is riven by treachery. Hildegard will need all her skills and bravery to counter the dark forces at work in the land.
