Summary
  • The holy thief: Brothers from Ramsey come to Shrewsbury looking for money to rebuild their monastery, which has been ransacked by rebel soldiers. They claim that a loan of Saint Winifred's Holy Relics would be suitable generosity. Cadfael and the Abbot opt to provide the men with a gift of precious gems instead. Then, during a cataclysmic night of violent storms, the Holy Relics disappear. Cadfael is dispatched to recover them and uncovers a wrong much greater than he had expected
  • The potter's field: After the local potter's field is given to the abbey, a plowman unearths a skeleton with long thick women's tresses unceremoniously buried there. Suspicion immediately falls on the newest monk, Brother Ruald, who lived on the land with his wife until abandoning it, and her, for the monastic life. The abandoned wife has been missing since shortly after Ruald left to answer his calling from God. But Cadfael remains puzzled, as he sees no signs of foul play on the remains. A yount novice fleeing warfare that has invaded a nearby monastery further complicates the picture
  • The pilgrim of hate: Amid the throng of hopeful pilgrims flocking to Shrewsbury Abbey on "Cripples' Day," a body is found in a leather sack. Brother Cadfael boils the body down to bones searching for clues to the victim's fate. But in the excitement of the day's festivities, the bones are stolen and the chief robbery suspect disappears, leaving Cadfael to unravel a twisted tale of retribution and murder
