Ashes to Ashes: The 8th chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, surgeon
The tradition on Saint John’s Day was to ward off sickness in cattle and men, by burning the bones of pigs. Men collecting the ashes for use as fertilizer the day after the celebration find human bones. Was it murder? What about human bones on your dining table? Kate never imagined her husband would inspect skeletons there.

The morning after the festivities of Midsummer's Eve, the villagers of Bampton make a grisly discovery
Master Hugh, Kate, and their children attend the Midsummer's Eve fire. The next morning Hugh hears the passing bell ring from the Church of St. Beornwald, and moments later is summoned. Tenants collecting the ashes to spread upon their fields have found burned bones.
Master Hugh learns of several men of Bampton and nearby villages who have gone missing recently. Most are soon found, some alive, some dead. Master Hugh eventually learns that the bones are those of a bailiff from a nearby manor. Someone has slain him and placed his body in the fire to destroy evidence of murder.
Bailiffs are not popular men; they dictate labor service, collect rents, and enforce other obligations. Has this bailiff died at the hand of some angry tenant? Hugh soon discovers this is not the case. There is quite another reason for murder . . .
