The Plowman’s Plight
by E. A. Rivière
A plowman falsely accused and outlawed.
An alchemist’s virgin who is more than she seems.
A fiendish murderer hiding in plain sight.
Cathar country, (now) southern France, 1200.
When the woodcutter’s only daughter is murdered, the bailiff tries to arrest Bertwoin, who flees to a master alchemist and his professional virgin for help.
Bertwoin must find the brutal killer while the grieving woodcutter, relentless bailiff, and righteous monks pursue him. His search for clues takes him to an abbey corpse room, a torture pit near the Devil’s Doorstep, and the accursed home of a heretic priest.
When monks capture Bertwoin, wily Flowia rescues him from the dungeon and hides with him where no one would think to look for them.
To save his own life and another life as precious as his own, Bertwoin must outwit the sadistic killer who hunts them . . . and who he knows where to find them.
