‘Why did His Grace come all that way and never even ask how your uncle died? It would be normal to question anyone who might have witness to offer. So why didn’t he do that?’ A coach accident prompts Alice Jerrard to offer shelter to Lord Hardcastle, his nephew Philip and their retinue. Within days, Lord Hardcastle is murdered, but the coroner pronounces misadventure. Alice and Philip join forces with neighbour Jack Egerton to uncover the truth, and find that not everyone is what they seem. As their discoveries unfold, pointing to the very steps of the English throne, they combat rival French and English interests to devise a daring plan that will outwit those who would plunder a besieged community’s coffers.
