A medieval mystery with a strong element of the occult, this book introduces the reader to Sir Richard Straccan, ex-Crusader and now dealer in authentic relics of saints. Straccan is commissioned to acquire the finger of Saint Thomas - but then his young daughter is kidnapped from the convent where she was living. Little does Straccan know of an evil sorcerer's nefarious plan, and that the holy relics that some may think mere symbols will be essential to stopping an evil worthy of Lovecraft.
This is Hamilton's first novel, and that is sometimes noticeable in some slight awkwardness to the flow of events, but overall, this is a very enjoyable book which effectively meshes the genres of historical mystery and occult horror.

In the crypt of the Abbey Church at Hallowdene,the monks were boiling their Bishop.It is 1209 and holy relics are big bussiness.
