Welcome to fifth-century Britain: the Romans have left, the Saxons have invaded, the towns are decaying and the countryside is dangerous. Malgwyn ap Cuneglas, an embittered former soldier who lost a limb in combat, is now a trusted advisor to Arthur, the High King of all Britannia. When a monk dies in horrific circumstances in Glastonbury Abbey, the Abbot calls for Malgwyn to investigate. His search for the truth will draw him into an intricate web of religious, economic and political deceit - and a conspiracy that could endanger everything Arthur has fought for.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A moving, gritty, intriguing take on the Arthurian myth with solid, well-drawn characters, and a fantastic murder mystery you can really sink your teeth into. The best of Ellis Peters rendered in the battle-tongue of Bernard Cornwell. * MC Scott *
Stirring stuff, with plenty of intrigue and atmosphere * Guardian *
A story of the factions that fought and plotted for supremacy, and it is the story of how one man, Malgwyn, is able to reclaim a life and dignity that seemed lost forever. Above all, it is a well-crafted, fine historical mystery * Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine *
Powerfully told and atmospherically driven * The New York Journal of Books *
Turns a time-honoured historical legend on its head, creating a new mystery series steeped in Arthurian mythology * Booklist *
A fascinating blend of history and fiction... sure to engage fans of both Bernard Cornwell and Ellis Peters * Library Journal *
Political intrigue and ancient superstition loom large in this excellent mystery * Publishers Weekly *
