Sanctuary sparrow: A young man pursued by a lynching mob seeks sanctuary at the Benedictine monastery in Shrewsbury. He is accused of robbery and murder, but Cadfael senses his innocence and sets out to prove it. Devil's novice: Suspicions abound when a young man turns up at Shrewsbury Abbey wanting to join as a novice and the half-burnt body of a missing cleric is found. Dead man's ransom: In the battle of Lincoln, the sheriff of Shropshire is captured, and the king himself is detained by his enemies. An exchange of prisoners is arranged: the sheriff will be bartered for a young Welsh lordling who has been captured during a misguided assault on a convent. All seems to be going according to plan until one of the prisoners dies under mysterious circumstances before the exchange is completed. Cadfael must determine whether the death was accidental or contrived.
