The Nun's Tale : An Owen Archer Mystery
And we have no Welsh in the garrison. They are a queer race, barefooted and barelegged most of the time, and the shiftiest shave their heads so they may run through the brush more easily, but leave hair on their upper lips to show it is their choice to be thus shorn.
A sly, violent people. There is no telling when they will turn -- begging your forgiveness, Captain. But you are Lancaster's man or he would not have trusted you here, so I doubt you take it amiss. Owen had meant to keep his counsel, but this rotten-toothed man with his foul-smelling breath and rude manner was more than he could bear. And as you were never invited into our land, I cannot see why you would expect courteous co-operation.

Although the Captain would prefer not to involve himself in this sordid matter, the bishop of St. David's insists that he interrupt his mission and return de Reine's body to his father. Fortunately, Robb provides maps enough to make sense of these peregrinations. As is to be expected from an Owen Archer adventure, a single death is never enough.
Thus it isn't long after the sleuth and his versifying companion arrive at Cydweli that there's another killing, followed by the disappearance of Father Edern together with Lascelles' pulchritudinous wife Tangwystl. Soon Archer is up to his last operating eyeball in questions with no obvious answers: Who is behind these slayings? Do they have anything to do with efforts by foreign intriguers to fan the flames of Welsh resistance against the dominating English?
How does the situation relate to Tangwystl's father, who may or may not be a traitor, but was deeply involved in a monetary scam? And what could all of this possibly have to do with a young pilgrim who, in the book's opening chapter, was found bloodied in the surf of distant Whitesands Bay and given shelter by the celebrated bard Dafydd ap Gwilym?

Remarkably, Robb succeeds in holding all of this together
