Dr. Vesuvia Adelia Rachel Ortese Aguilar of Salerno, a medieval coroner, has been hired secretly by King Henry II to find out who is behind the horrific murders of Christian children in Cambridge. Prominent local Jews stand accused but Henry wants them freed, mostly for the sake of their tax revenue. As Adelia examines the children's bodies and gets to know the people of Cambridge, she has no trouble assembling a long list of suspects.
