Another wonderful murder mystery from the pen of Margaret Frazer featuring our protagonist of record, Dame Frevisse. Although we normally see Frevisse and her sisters in the setting of their Benedictine house, this time we accompany Frevisse and one of her sisters on a pilgrimage. It is during this pilgrimage, while being extended the hospitality of one of the manor houses they pass by while on pilgrimage.
It is during this stop that Frevisse, her sister, and the entire household are drawn into murder and mayhem. The death in this story draws the reader into the contemporary understanding of epilepsy in terms of demonic possession and/or madness.
The narrative is, as always, well crafted and though the perpetrator in this case is well known from the beginning, the narrative is still engaging and captivating.
Well written and highly recommended.
