       Additional Information  
      The latest medieval mystery in the acclaimed series finds Dame Frevisse on a mission in London to recover gold from the coffers of the murdered Duke of Suffolk and give the gold to her cousin.

    Frevisse's co-conspirators in this secrecy are seamstress Anne Blakehall and her lover, a Jewish trader smuggling the gold through Anne's shop. But their mission is jeopardized when a crucified body is discovered, supposedly scarred with Hebrew letters, stirring up anti-Semitic sentiment in the populace.
