Publication: William Morrow & Company, 1939, New York
First edition. Fine in dust jacket. May 1195, and Sir John de Wolfe is faced with a strange series of serial murders, which begins with the suffocation of a Jewish money-lender and proceeds to the murders of a London harlot, a dissolute priest and a burgess suspected of abusing young boys. The common factor in all of the murders is that an appropriate Biblical text is left at each murder scene, the mode of which reflects the alleged sin of the victim.
