The Kell has died in a time of political uncertainty.
Moctan to the East and Longbridge to the West share a tenuous truce, and when evidence suggests that his passing may not have been natural, Gregor of Durkshire and a team of hand-picked men are sent to the rival city state to uncover the truth.
As Gregor works to root out possible corruption at the highest levels of Church and government, he finds that he must constantly weigh his allegiance to his men, his country, and his faith.

An enjoyable escape
The audio version was more convenient for me, so I could listen to it in the car.
This story swept me away to another land and time. Gregor and his comrades set out on a quest to get to the bottom of a mystery. During their journey, they experience several exciting adventures.
Herbert did a great job playing the voices of the different men in Gregor's team. Each of these men had their own unique mannerisms so it is hard to pick a favorite.
There were parts of the book that made me laugh, and a few very tense moments that had me worried about the characters as they faced danger and dilemmas.
If you enjoy medieval fantasy/adventure stories, you will enjoy this book.
