The Embroidered Corpse begins with two startling murders that replicate the death of a mediaeval English king and the discovery of a mysterious ancient tapestry lead Belinda Lawrence and her associate Hazel Whitby into a vortex of suspense involving a bizarre religious cult, an enigmatic academic, a group of monks devoted to aggression and clues to a thrilling conspiracy nearly a thousand years old.

Bloody Ham is the third adventure for Belinda and Hazel continuing the pace and humour that readers have come to acknowledge and appreciate.
