Crispin Guest gets himself into some serious trouble in London and as a result
is forced to accept an assignment far out of town. The Archbishop of Canterbury
has specifically requested Crispin to investigate a threat against the bones of
saint and martyr Thomas a Becket, which are housed in a shrine in Canterbury
Cathedral. The Archbishop has received letters threatening the safety of the
artifacts, and he wants Crispin to protect them and uncover whoever is after
them. But when he arrives at Canterbury, Crispin is accosted by an old
acquaintance from court, one Geoffrey Chaucer, who has arrived with a group of
pilgrims. Trapped in Canterbury, looking for a murderer, a hidden heretic, and
a solution to the riddle that will allow him to go back home, Crispin Guest
finds his considerable wit and intellect taxed to its very limit.
