In the year 1101, disgusted with the political bickering among the lords who rule the Holy City, Sir Geoffrey Mappestone returns to his home at Goodrich Castle on the Welsh border. He is travelling in the company of a knight who claims to be carrying an urgent message for King Henry I.

Lots of plot twists and turns. Period mystery that keeps you guessing. Most of the characters are pretty unsympathertic but you do root for the hero. Otherwise, you don't really know who are the good guys and who are the bad guys!
