Murder Stalks Oxford’s Hallowed Shrines
The ancient traditions of All Hallow’s Eve come alive for Felicity in a terrifyingly personal way when Oxford’s muffled bells toll another death. Can Felicity prevent the next one?

Donna Fletcher Crow is a former English teacher and a lifelong Anglophile. She is the author of 50 books, mostly novels of British history, but throughout the quarter century of its life Glastonbury has remained her most honoured work. Crow is known for her meticulous research and tries never to write about a place she hasn’t visited. Her many pilgrimages to Glastonbury are a highlight. In our current days of turmoil Crow hopes readers will find special meaning in Glastonbury’s theme that through the darkest days of history, no matter how dimly the light of faith may have burned, Light always triumphed. May it be so for our day.
Skillfully builds tension from one peril to another, leading to a thrilling climax and satisfying denouement. But
more than just a mystery, Crow weaves in rich and colorful details of English
church and political history.
