There is a Conclave at the tiny De'ath Dingle monastery near Lincoln England. I am sure the name was supposed to be funny- De'ath- but it wasn't to me. The discussion at the Conclave was if the Lord got sand in his shoes during his days in the wilderness and suffered the discomforts of mortal man. Surprisingly during the debate, many of the brothers drifted off in boredom so when Brother Ambrosius made his closing arguments only Brother Hermitage was left. Ambrosius sits down and dies. Hermitage assumes it's old age, Ambrosius is almost 50 but when others come in they assume Hermitage murdered him.
This starts one of the most convoluted plots involving a scheme with an Earl, the Pope and King Harald and even the Battle of 1066. There are also some Masons thrown in for no particular reason other than a discussion of the organization's beginnings. There is another murder. Things get murkier. When the cause of Ambrosius' death is finally uncovered, it is ridiculous.
I did not enjoy the book and was disappointed. It could have been so interesting. It was a fascinating time and had the foundation of an interesting story. I think the author just got in his own way.
