In his fourth chronicle. Brother Cadfael is summoned from his peaceful herb garden to solve the mystery of a merchant's murder. Saint Peter's Fair is a grand festive event, attracting tradesmen from across England and beyond. It is the summer of 1139 and the civil war ransacking the country has stalled temporarily. The fair promises to bring some much needed gaiety to the town of Shrewsbury. Until, that is, the body of a wealthy trader is found in the River Severn. Was Thomas of Bristol the victim of murderous thieves? But, if so, why were his valuables abandoned nearby? Brother Cadfael offers to help the merchant's niece, Emma. While he is searching for the killer, the dead man's wares are ransacked and two more men are murdered. Emma almost certainly knows more than she is telling. Cadfael desperately races to save the young girl, knowing that, in a country at war with itself, betrayal can come from any direction. And even good intentions can kill.
