Hippo Yeoman, an apothecary, is accused of four bestial murders. The highest officials of the College of Physicians, the four Censors, have been slaughtered by a serial murderer.
He works to a poetic pattern of revenge. Each murder is apt to the vice of each Censor. A lustful Censor is eaten in the groin by a pig, an arrogant one is hurled from a high place, a mad dissectionist is dissected alive, and a cold-hearted man is baked to death.
To avoid the gallows, Hippo must discover the murderer’s identity, and quickly. All his friends have the means and motive. As time runs out, Hippo finds the killer. It is the one friend he never suspected. The case is proved beyond all doubt. The murderer confesses. Hippo is saved from the gallows.
But has Hippo found the true murderer?
Only in the last scene of this historical mystery is the appalling truth revealed. And even then, the reader may wonder, is it the real truth? Could the killer - unthinkably - still be at large?
