  1. Hello I read that book in the 80's, and i've been looking for it for quite some time now, without success. Maybe I could get help in this forum? It's most probably from an english writer... It's the story of a middle age woman specialised in folklore studies, who comes to a small english town preparing a ancient yearly festival, featuring various acts including wearing armors and riding hobby horses. When she's mingling with the people in that town, a crime is committed, and one decisive step of the police investigation later on happens when they find out that it was her who was riding that hobby horse during the festival, wearing that armor, instead of the man who was supposed to do it, giving him a precious alibi... Does that ring any bell? Thank you for your help
