|Plot Summary of An Order for Death - Chronicles of Matthew Bartholomew 7|
|"In Cambridge, during March 1354, the Carmelites and the Dominicans are at loggerheads over theological divisions which become so heated that the more fanatical followers are willing to use violence instead of debate. Suddenly a Carmelite friar named Faricus is discovered stabbed to death. A junior proctor (university policeman) is found hanging from the wall of a Dominican friary. As tempers run high, threatening riot, the teacher of medicine Doctor Matthew Bartholomew is called in to assist Brother Michael to hunt down the killers before Cambridge erupts.
