King Edward IV trembles as he decides the fate of his sibling. And Richard, Duke of Gloucester, tries to find a way to save George from being put to death by their eldest brother, the King.
So when the Duke sees his loyal servant Roger the Chapman at his trial, he recognises that he has a chance. If only the chapman-sleuth could prove that Isolda Bonifant, the daughter of a well-established London goldsmith, hadn't poisoned her husband.
If he could clear Isolda's name, then Edward's chief mistress - cousin of the accused Isolda - would be willing to do the wily Duke's bidding. But Roger the Chapman must act fast and, in this complex case, he can't simply rely on his intuition.

If you enjoy Roger you will like this book. The plot is good and as always the characters are well drawn. The story doesn't stay with you but while you are listening it is a lovely ride.
I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who loves medievil stories!
Peter Wickham brings the charactors to life for me. I was able to distiguish each person by his talented voice. I usually prefer dramatization of books, but this book really came to life, as if I were there watching it unfold.
Yes, after all of the painstaking detective that went into solving the murder, the twist at the end knocked me off my feet! I was truly surprised!
