June, 1143. The much-feared and hated Eudo – the Lord Bishop of Winchester’s clerk – is bludgeoned to death in Pershore Abbey and laid before the altar like a penitent. A despicable man he may have been, but who had reason to kill him?

As the walls of the Abbey close in on the suspects, Serjeant Catchpoll and his new, unwanted superior, Undersheriff Hugh Bradecote must find the answer before the killer strikes again . . .

‘A clever, very well-written and extremely enjoyable murder mystery. I absolutely loved it!’ (Crime Review)

Previously published as The Lord Bishop’s Clerk, Servant of Death is the first instalment in the Bradecote and Catchpoll series.
