Keeping watch over the Easter Sepulchre, where the Host and crucifix are stored between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, is a great honour. Which is why the clerics are shocked to discover that Odo, one of the priest’s clerks, has abandoned his post in the middle of the night.

But as the hours pass and Odo is not found, panic rises. At first light Bampton’s bailiff, Hugh de Singleton, is roused from his bed.

It is Hugh that ingeniously finds the clue that leads all to fear for the life of the missing man… The question is, will Hugh be called to investigate another murder, or will he find the man hale and hearty? But if the latter, where has the blood come from?

Mel Starr was born and grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. After graduating with a MA in history from Western Michigan University in 1970, he taught history in Michigan public schools for thirty-nine years. Since retiring, he has focused on his highly successful novels. Mel and his wife, Susan, have two daughters and eight grandchildren.
