Here's another good one from Margaret Frazer about Sister Frevisse. A small party with two small boys asks to take sanctuary at the priory after being attacked on the road, but it becomes apparent they have not escaped danger when two more of their party are killed in the days that follow. It's obvious to Frevisse that dangerous politics is involved and she must find the murderer quickly. As always, Frazer is adept at characterization, and the impending death of their beloved prioress from old age adds poignancy to this story.
