'Compellingly brought to life' - Julian Stockwin
Exeter, 1323: a strange figure - obsessed with children - seems intent on entering people's homes at night. Though many believe him to be harmless, a man now lies dead, slaughtered for protecting his family, and the person responsible must be caught.
To Sir Baldwin de Furnshill, the death is suspicious, for the victim had many enemies amid the city's criminal underworld. As the country prepares for yet another civil war, Baldwin faces an impossible task. And when two further bodies are uncovered, the city shudders at the prospect of a killer still at large...
