Mayhem and miracles in Wales beckon Owen Archer back to his roots...and to a ruthless killer.
In the wet spring of 1370, a time of political unrest, a murdered man is left outside the gates of St. David's, Wales. Not far away, a wounded stranger, drenched in blood-- not all of it his own-- is carried to sanctuary by a wandering bard. And a mystery linked to warring passions for a woman and a nation begins for Owen Archer.
Owen, leaving his family behind, has undertaken a holy pilgrimage to Wales with his ailing father-in-law and his friend Geoffrey Chaucer-- and has agreed to carry out a mission for the English king. But he is unexpectedly moved by his return to his native land. And when asked to investigate the killing at St. David's, Owen-- sharp at discerning truth from falsehood-- begins to see the momentous import of a fugitive shrouded in secrecy, a lady betrayed by love, and the ties binding a man's soul...that tighten to torment his heart.
Geoffery Chaucer joins one-eyed spy Owen Archer on a journey to the Welsh cathedral of St. David's. Trouble precedes the party to St. David's: At the gateway to the city, a man is found stabbed to death, his shoes filled with pale sand. Another murder and the disappearance of the steward's wife cause Owen to take action--and to question his own loyalties. Martin's Press.
