The archaeological society had been let into George Stebbing's lower meadow to unearth Anglo-Saxon relics. What they dug up was a corpse. Not fresh, but certainly not ancient, thought Detective Inspector Rudd as he peered into the grave where the mysterious body had lain for several years. Not enough flesh remained for fingerprints. There were no teeth to help with identification, and certainly no way to tell what the man looked like except for strands of brown and gray hair. It would take all of Rudd's experience from his years with the Chelmsford C.I.D. to identify this poor soul, to discover how he was murdered ... and to find who killed him. But Rudd already had his suspicions. They began with a crucifix on a chain and led back into the past to buried secrets, passion, and revenge.
