When word reaches Cashel that the culprit will be executed under new law, a larger conflict threatens.

Dispatched to investigate, Sister Fidelma and her companion Eadulf discover that the man facing punishment is Gorman - commander of the King's bodyguard.

But Fidelma cannot believe Gorman would carry out such an act - and yet he was found locked in a chamber with the body, weapon in hand.

As the threat of war looms, the date of execution drawers ever closer...
