Description: The fourth anniversary of the transfer of Saint Winifred's bones to the Abbey at Shrewsbury is a time of celebration for the 12th-century pilgrims gathering from far and wide. In distant Winchester, however, a knight has been murdered. Could it be because he was a supporter of the Empress Maud, one of numerous pretenders to the throne? It's up to herbalist, sleuth, and Benedictine monk Brother Cadfael to track down the killer in the pious throng.

Dem bones, Dem bones. Cadfael plays jigsaw to find out some facts.

Have one TV episode left in my storage box and that'll do fine for next week. Now I go back to New York to continue with The Golem and the Jinni.
