London, 1196. At the command of Richard the Lionheart, Sir John de
Wolfe has left his beloved West Country for the Palace of
Westminster, where he has been appointed Coroner of the Verge. But
with the king overseas, embroiled in a costly war against King
Philip of France, Sir John is dismayed to discover that the English
court is a hotbed of greed, corruption and petty in-fighting. The
murder of one of the palace clerks, stabbed in broad daylight and
thrown into the River Thames, leads John to suspect that there's a
conspiracy underway to overthrow King Richard. And with the visit
of the dowager Queen Eleanor fast approaching, the new Coroner must
risk his life to prove his suspicions are right, root out the
traitors within and prevent a national catastrophe.
