In the Shrewsbury spring of 1140 the midnight matins at the Benedictine abbey reverberate with an unholy sound, a hunt in full cry. Pursued by a drunken mob, the quarry is running for its life. When the creature bursts into the nave to claim sanctuary, Brother Cadfael finds himself fighting off armed townsmen to save a young man.
