The fourth chronicle of Matthew Bartholomew continues the adventures of the 14th century Cambridge physician when he is called to attend to two deaths from some poisoned wine.
In the winter of 1353, torrential rains are spreading fever to the poor and making travel especially hazardous along the town's outlaw-infested roads. Then three members of the University die by drinking poisoned wine.
College physician Matthew Bartholomew would rather not get involved in the investigation, but when his life is threatened, he stumbles on criminal activities that implicate friends, relatives, and colleagues--a deadly brew of evil intent.
