When one of her company falls ill on a return journey to Tyndal, Prioress Eleanor accepts lodging at a nearby manor. Master Stevyns' wife is having an affair with the groom while a local widow acts more the lady of the manor than the lady herself. His eldest son and spouse are obsessed with sin and heaven while his youngest son, bound for the Church, unexpectedly returns with more interest in lute playing than the priesthood. It is no surprise when someone's throat is cut, but the sheriff does all he can to avoid offending the family rather than seeking the real killer. When he arrests a servant, she herself is stabbed before she can either prove innocence or be taken off for hanging. Will Eleanor discover the dark secrets that have led to this string of killings before the murderer strikes again?

Brother Thomas has a talent for the law and business dealings, so he and Prioress Eleanor take a young novice on a trip to settle some priory land problems. On the way back a storm and the novice's illness cause them to ask for shelter at the house of the local land steward. This household is rife with all sorts of human frailties: religious fanaticism, marital infidelity, and a prodigal son. The result, of course, is a series of murders. In order to keep an ambitious sheriff from hanging the wrong person, Eleanor and Thomas get involved and find out who the guilty person is. It is a toss-up with so many possibilities to choose from, but Thomas and Eleanor manage to winnow out the good guys from the bad guys.
