The Lirey Shroud Mystery
by Trevor Whitton
The wife of the Bailli of Troyes is discovered stabbing a man who had attacked her several weeks earlier. Her husband and his deputy (Jean Bellimont) are left to unravel the web of intrigue leading up to this event, which appears to be centred around a mysterious artefact commissioned by one of the local nobles and the Bishop (the Lirey Shroud). This is the fourth of the Jean Bellimont novels.
