Tyrant of the Mind

Tyrant of the Mind


Praise for Tyrant of the Mind...
"This second medieval mystery featuring the delightfully flawed Eleanor, Prioress of Tyndal, grabs readers by the lapels and forcibly hauls them into eleventh-century East Anglia." -Booklist
"This realistic medieval fare will appeal to devotees of Ellis Peters's Brother Cadfael series." -Library Journal
In the winter of 1271, Death stalks the corridors of Wynethorpe Castle on the Welsh border. When the Grim Reaper touches the beloved grandson of the castle lord, Baron Adam sends for his daughter, Prioress Eleanor of Tyndal, and her sub-infirmarian, Sister Anne, to save the child with prayers and healing talents. Escorting them to the remote fortress is Brother Thomas, an unwilling monk fighting his private demons.
Soon after the trio arrives, an important guest is murdered. The prioress' brother, bloody dagger in hand, stands over the corpse. Outside her priory, in a world of armed men, Eleanor may have little authority, but she is determined to untangle the Gordian knot of thwarted passions and old resentments even if it means defying her father, with whom she longs to make peace. As passions rise and time runs short, Eleanor, Anne, and Thomas struggle to find the real killer before wily Death claims another victim and the brother is sent for hanging.
