Additional Information

A Death in Catte Street

A young Geoffrey Chaucer notices three men in London who have no right to be there. Two days later, he is shown a corpse that was found, without a mark on him, in the basement of a locked house. He recognizes it as one of the three men. Curiosity and a sense of moral obligation prompt him to explore the incident. Who was the man? Where are his companions, and why did they place themselves in danger by coming to England? How did the corpse get into a locked house?

His fumbling investigations—while more underground deaths turn up—expose him to conflict with the London sheriff, a lecture on the king's finances, a large building in London that uses taxpayer money to support a single individual of no legal standing, the collapse of the Italian banking industry, and England's anti-Semitic history.

This is the first in a proposed series that dovetails what is known about Chaucer through existing records and the culture of his time with fictional mysteries. It is told in the first person by an older Chaucer looking back on his life.

A Notes section at the end of the book offers historical background on the people, places and events mentioned in the book. If you like learning about the Middle Ages through reading fiction, this is a book for you.
