MISSAL FOR MURDER - PUBLISHED IN 2018
Set in medieval times, when a friend of Matthias Barton’s serving man is found stabbed in the Lady Chapel of Sherborne Abbey, he feels mystified as the young man had no reason to be there. Another killing follows, which seems somehow to be connected, and Matthias seeks out the Coroner for advice. Matthias finds himself more involved than he had intended, and against the backdrop of the bad feeling between the Abbot of Sherborne and the townspeople of Sherborne, this unfolding tale of theft and murder in 1436 uses a mixture of fact and fiction. Matthias is unused to murder - how will he fare against the unscrupulous and ruthless adversaries he unwittingly faces?
