SYNOPSIS:  “In the crypt of the Abbey Church at Hallowdene, the monks were boiling their Bishop … It is 1209 and holy relics are big business. They are bought and sold and stolen for kings, abbots and priors and no part of the Bishop of Hallowdene will go to waste. Instead he will join the long list of holy artefacts on the market – there’s the girdle of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Foreskin, the ear of Saint Marcellinus and the rib of Saint Cecilia, to name but a few… Sir Richard Straccan, excrusader, makes his living dealing in these divine body-parts.
