One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters

In the summer of 1138, war takes Brother Cadfael into a battlefield of passions, deceptions, and death. Shrewsbury Castle falls, leaving its 94 defenders to hang as traitors. With a heavy heart, Cadfael agrees to bury the dead, only to make a grisly discovery: one extra victim has been strangled, not hanged. This ingenious way to dispose of a corpse tells Cadfael that the killer is both clever and ruthless. He vows to find the truth behind disparate clues: a girl in boy’s clothing, a missing treasure, and a single broken flower… the tiny bit of evidence that Cadfael believes can expose a murderer’s black heart.
