The Road to Canterbury, 1351.
The Pestilence has ravaged England. Fields and villages lie abandoned but for crows and corpses. Roads and highways are unpatrolled but for marauders and murderers. In these dark and dangerous times, the wise keep to themselves.
But disgraced Knight Gerard Fox cannot afford to be wise. He has been robbed of his ancestral home, his family name tarnished. To regain his lands and redeem his honour, he sets forth to petition the one man who can restore them.
Fate places Fox on the wrong road at the wrong time. Riding deep into the wild woods, he hurtles towards a chance encounter. It will entangle him with an enigmatic woman, a relic of incalculable value and a dark family secret. It will lead him far from home and set him on a collision course with one of the most ambitious and dangerous men in Europe - a man on the cusp of seizing Christendom's highest office.
And now, Fox is the only one standing in his way.
