But it is the manner of the death that most startles amateur detective Belinda Lawrence.
They were both slain in a way that perfectly replicates the death a medieval English king.
There appears to be no motive for so elaborate a crime.
But after she stumbles across a mysterious ancient tapestry, Belinda Lawrence and her associate Hazel Whitby are drawn into a terrifying conspiracy involving a bizarre religious cult, an enigmatic academic, a group of secretive monks -- and a mystery that dates back nearly a thousand years old.
And it soon becomes apparent that 'The Embroidered Corpse' will not be the last dead body - Belinda's own life is at stake.
‘The Embroidered Corpse’ is a brilliant re-invention of the classic English village murder mystery, following on from the best-selling 'Capable of Murder'.
Belinda Lawrence is a lively young heroine who pits her intellect against cold-blooded and ruthless killers - a character who is among the most memorable and engaging in modern detective fiction.
‘The Embroidered Corpse' is perfect for fans of Peter James, Elizabeth George and Peter Robinson.
