Silvano and Chiara are two teenagers with a difference. Silvano has been accused of a murder he did not commit. Chiara has been ousted from her family as a young woman with no marriage prospects. For these two very different reasons they are forced to seek refuge in a neighbouring convent and friary. And when they meet they are instantly aware that they are both outsiders; ill at ease with monastic life. Then a grisly murder - followed by another; and then another - strikes fear into the close-knit community. Chiara and Silvano cling together within the terrifying spiral of murder as they; and the friends they have made; attempt to solve the deadly mystery. This remarkably rich mystery thriller; with all the pace and action of a 'whodunnit'; is set in the incredibly atmospheric environs of a friary in 14th-century Italy. Amidst all the action of the murder mystery; the author depicts in fascinating and intricate detail the lives and tasks of the friars and nuns; whether it be crushing pigments to create paints for the fresco artists in nearby Assisi; or the daily and nightly ritual of the religious services. All the historical detail is carefully researched. A huge cast of characters with romantic teen heroes; combined with the thriller-murder element; ensure a pacy; richly enjoyable read.
