Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446403016, Mass Market Paperback)When a merchant bound for St. Peter's Fair is found with a slender dagger piercing his heart, Brother Cadfael is on the case. Two murders later, he realizes that no one--least of all the merchant's lovely niece--is safe. "Colorful, convincing details on the workings of a medieval fair".--Kirkus Reviews.

At the annual fair of Saint Peter, an unseemly quarrel breaks out between the local burghers and the monks, as to who shall benefit from the levies the fair provides. Afterwards a merchant is found dead and Brother Cadfael is called upon to investigate.
