The nuns of Kent have been commissioned by King William’s brother, Earl Odo, to create a great tapestry telling the glorious history of the Norman conquest of Britain. But when the nuns start dying, one man must be sent for; Brother Hermitage, the King’s Investigator.
With Wat and Cwen, erstwhile weavers of “adult” tapestry themselves, he must solve the crime or face the consequences; as usual. The best plan is probably to wander around Kent rather hopelessly and trust that something occurs to him right at the end; also as usual.
At least in this tale the truth of the Bayeux Tapestry will be revealed: (well, a truth, perhaps). How did it come to be? Who made it? And who thinks that they should have been given the job instead?
