Identifying the murderer of the Chancellor of the university is not the only challenge facing physician Matthew Bartholomew. Many of his patients have been made worse by the ministrations of a 'surgeon' recently arrived from Nottingham, his sister is being rooked by the mason she has commissioned to build her husband's tomb and his friend, Brother Michael, has been offered a bishopric which will cause him to leave Cambridge.
Brother Michael, keen to leave the university in good order, is determined that the new Chancellor will be a man of his choosing. The number of contenders putting themselves forward for election threatens to get out of control, then more deaths in mysterious circumstances make it appear that someone is taking extreme measures to manipulate the competition.
With passions running high and a bold killer at large, both Bartholomew and Brother Michael fear the very future of the university is at stake.

Excellent series, looking for more in audio
Susanna Gregory has developed an excellent series, maintaining certain enjoyable and evolving characters throughout the series while always introducing new people, new history to the story.
Matthew, the complexity of his character grows.
Not sure; there was rather a lot of what seemed like over-dramatization - as much as I loved the story, I was tempted to fast forward through some of the more emotional scenes.
Greed. politics, and scheming... a historical curriculum.
I do hope audiobooks of the earlier books in this series are done, especially if they are narrated by Andrew Wincott.
