When Seb’s wayward, elder brother, Jude, returns, unannounced, from Italy with a child-bride upon his arm, shock turns to dismay as life becomes more complicated and troubles multiply.

From counterfeit coins to deadly darkness in the worst corners of London, from mysterious thefts to attacks of murderous intent – Seb finds himself embroiled at every turn. With a royal commission to fulfil and heartache to resolve, can our hero win through against the odds?

Five stars

historical fiction at its best! ... an astounding job of bringing you into medieval English life

Greetings, my name is Sebastian, my brother Jude and I are from Foxley, a small village in Norfolk, just a few miles north west of Norwich.

I was born in 1453, the year our lord king Henry, the sixth of that name, lost his reason; Jude is nearly three years my senior.

I'm an illuminator and Jude a scribe and we work near St Paul's Cathedral in the city of London, producing illuminated manuscripts. Most people in our trade work around here; stationers and bookbinders even store their paper in the cathedral crypt.

The late autumn grass, frost-rimed, crunched beneath his feet as he trudged towards his favoured spot beneath an oak tree, beside the Horse Pool.

The hedgerow was aglow with jewels amongst the last yellowing leaves; each gem dusted with frost – haws and rosehips like rubies, sloes dark as sapphires, delicate-hued pearls of bryony. But his artist’s eye was drawn to the diamond-strung cobwebs that draped the brambles.....

I am indebted to the talented artist Dmitry Yakhovsky, from Minsk in Belarus, for the beautiful designs of my book covers and the creation of our hero Seb Foxley. Not forgetting my publisher, Tim Ridgway at
