Sister Fidelma returns in this brand-new 7th-century Irish mystery by Peter Tremayne, acclaimed author of THE DEVIL'S SEAL and THE SECOND DEATH.

Ireland, AD 671. King Colg of Cashel is shocked to learn that his loyal Chief Bishop and advisor has been murdered in the old enemy fortress of the U Fidgente. When word reaches Cashel that the culprit will be executed under new law, a larger conflict threatens.

Dispatched to investigate, Sister Fidelma and her companion Eadulf discover that the man facing punishment is Gormn - commander of the King's bodyguard. But Fidelma cannot believe Gormn would carry out such an act - and yet he was found locked in a chamber with the body, weapon in hand. The evidence is stacked against him.

If they are to save Gormn and keep the peace between the kingdoms, Fidelma and Eadulf must find the true culprit. As the threat of war looms, the date of execution draws ever closer...

Peter Tremayne is the fiction pseudonym of a well-known authority on the ancient Celts, who has utilised his knowledge of the Brehon law system and 7th-Century Irish society to create a new concept in detective fiction.
