    A Corpse at St. Andrew's Chapel

    Book #2

    Author: Mel Starr
    New edition of the second installment of the best-selling Chronicles of Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon

    Alan, the beadle of the manor of Bampton, had gone out at dusk to seek those who might violate curfew. When, the following morning, he had still not returned home, his young wife Matilda sought out Master Hugh de Singleton, surgeon and bailiff of the manor.

    Two days later Alan's corpse is discovered in the hedge, at the side of the track to St. Andrew's Chapel. His throat has been torn out, his head half-severed from his body and his face, hands, and forearms lacerated with deep scratches.

    Master Hugh, meeting Hubert the coroner at the scene, listens carefully as the coroner surmises that a wolf had caused the great wound. And yet... if so, why is there so little blood?

    "This skillfully woven story is a delight to read. The setting is exceptionally well crafted. Highly recommended."
    --Davis Bunn, best-selling author
