A Stolen Tongue : An enthralling mystery set along the route of a fifteenth-century religious pilgrimage, A Stolen Tongue is a captivating debut novel that recalls the work of Umberto Eco and Barry Unsworth. It is 1483 and Father Felix Fabri has set sail from Germany to Mount Sinai on a pilgrimage to venerate the relics of the martyr Saint Katherine of Alexandria. But at each of the shrines he visits throughout Greece and Palestine, he finds that the remains of Katherine's body are being stolen in bits and pieces; her hand, her ear, and then her tongue are missing from their holy resting places. Desperate to discover the thief and save his saint from such a brutal fate, Felix is thrust into a deep and strange mystery that takes him across the desert and plumbs the depths of his soul.
