But the ship which was transporting Nizam and his retainers is found wrecked off the south Devon coast, its crew savagely slaughtered. Then a Norman knight is foully murdered in Exeter cathedral. It's up to Sir John de Wolfe, the county coroner, to find a motive and connection between the killings...
