Abstract:

Cambridge, 1392. Matthew Bartholomew, physician to Michaelhouse College, is called to examine some mysterious bones found in the King's Ditch. The next day he is called to the Ditch again: a student has been found dead there. Meanwhile, it seems Dominica, former lover of the dead student, has disappeared. Are these events connected? Then a skeletal hand is found in the Ditch, hailed by townsfolk as the final remains of local martyr Simon d'Ambrey, and hence a holy relic. When Bartholomew finds that the hand is wearing a ring apparently identical to a pair worn by Dominica and her ex-lover, he knows that his investigative skills are called for.
