Synopsis for Original Title

The great annual fair of Saint Peter at Shresbury attracts merchants from far and wide to do business. But when an unseemly quarrel breaks out between the local burghers and the monks from the Benedictine monastery as to who shall benefit from the levies the fair provides, a riot ensues. Afterwards a merchant is found dead--and Brother Cadfael is summoned to test his skills as a detective once more.
