A MEDIEVAL MORALITY PLAY SETS THE STAGE FOR A DEADLY PERFORMANCE...

Almost everyone in his actors' troupe has reason to kill the vile and tyrannical Stefano de Askeles, and when lie crew lands in Oxford to put on a local production, someone does just that--or tries to...

De Askeles's unfortunate stand-in gives his final performance when, during a rehearsal, he receives a fatal blow that was intended for de Askeles. Witness to this dire act is the brilliant William Falconer, an Oxford regent master, who happens to be scouring the back alleys of Oxford in order to help his mentor, Roger Bacon, with some research into the mysterious science of alchemy.

With motives aplenty and nary a moral involved in this morality play, Falconer deftly investigates the secrecy surrounding the relics of a long-dead saint and a chilling tale of murder. Trapped between the forces of good and evil, he must now raise the curtain on a ruthless killer.
