E-book

AD 1270: The Priory of Tyndal, on a windswept East Anglian coast, is dedicated to love and peace. But Eleanor of Wynethorpe, the twenty-one-year-old new prioress, will find little of either. Instead, she will face lust, greed and murder.

I. THE WINE OF VIOLENCE:

Only a day after Eleanor's arrival at Tyndal priory, a brutally mutilated monk is found dead in the cloister gardens. Not only must Eleanor struggle to gain the respect of her terrified and resentful flock, but she must also find a killer.

II. TYRANT OF THE MIND:

In mid-winter, Eleanor is summoned to tend her dying nephew. A bitter chill pervades her family's castle: not only is it beseiged by blizzards without, but it seethes with murderous tensions within. Soon after Eleanor arrives, her brother, bloody dagger in hand, is found standing over the corpse of his oldest friend. Eleanor must prove his innocence before he meets his fate on the hangman's gibbet.

III. SORROW WITHOUT END:

In the woods surrounding Tyndal Priory, the discovery of a disembowelled corpse wrapped in a crusader's cloak horrifies the community. A bronze dagger planted in the man's chest is engraved with a strange, cursive design. It is no Englishman's weapon. Could it be a Saracen blade? Wielded by an assassin?

"Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

"Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

"Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
