This historical thriller, whose protagonist is inspired by a real
16th-century doctor named Simon Furman, is full of period detail
that is reflective of the political intrigues of the times. On May
Day 1592, after a night of revelry and a day tending the sick,
Forman falls into bed utterly exhausted. Soon afterward, he is
woken by a man on his doorstep who is dying from a sword thrust,
and the next morning Forman is summoned to Whitehall, accused of
harboring enemies of the state. To prove his innocence, he agrees
to journey to Edinburgh on a secret spying mission. But once he
enters the borders between Scotland and England--where the
bloodthirsty Reivers vow a life for a life--he realizes that death
is stalking him. As one gruesome murder closely follows another,
Dr. Forman must act quickly to identify a ruthless killer before
his own life is put in jeopardy.
