Summary
When his superior turns up dead and dismembered, Brother Bernard, an Inquisitor of Heretical Depravity, suddenly finds himself the target of persecution because of his involvement with a mysterious suspect in the crime and her beautiful daughter and must unravel the truth about the shocking crime or pay with his life, in a mystery set against the backdrop of fourteenth-century France.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: El padre Bernard Peyre de la abadía de Lezet, –el inquisidor del título—es el narrador de este bien construido suspense situado en la Francia el siglo XIV, en el que uno de sus superiores, el padre Agustín, es brutalmente asesinado y descuartizado junto con su guardaespaldas. La investigación que inicia el padre Bernard debe desenmascarar al verdadero asesino y revelar las razones de su crimen para salvar a una inocente que ha sido acusada de manera injusta. El Inquisidor, una novela que en ocasiones roza la sátira al hablar de la corrupción eclesiástica y las maquinaciones del clero en la Edad Media, está en la línea del suspense y rigor histórico de El nombre de la rosa. La australiana Catherine Jinks ha conseguido con El Inquisidor dotar de vida, acción y humor una de las épocas más oscuras de la historia francesa y europea. / I hereby record those events which took place in and around the city of Lazet relating to the assassination of our venerable Brother Augustin Duese in the year of the Incarnate Word, 1318.So writes Brother Bernard, an Inquisitor of Heretical Depravity, following the discovery of his superior's dismembered corpse. At a time when heresy is a heinous offence, routed out with ruthless determination, Brother Bernard is accustomed to dispensing harsh justice. But as he attempts to make sense of this shocking crime, he himself becomes an object of persecution-thanks to his passionate involvement with a mysterious suspect and her beautiful daughter. Pursued as a heretic, implicated as a murderer, Bernard must now face his accusers. To fail such a task, in fourteenth century France, means certain death.
