Author: Henry Vyner-Brooks
The Stage: While Brother Pacificus hides from his own past, the old world - monasteries, hospitals, guilds - is being squandered. Now he awakes to a new world order: the rise of the restless rich, the omnipotent state, the triumph of fact. The Players: They were nobodies; pawns, misfits, caught in the cogs of other men's schemes. A monk, a leper, a whore, an eel-catcher, three children with parents accused of heresy, washed up like flotsam in these Norfolk backwaters. The Inferno: Heresy, sedition, betrayal, murder; England's last Benedictine house boils over. Trust no one. Watch your back.
