Where better, then, to hide a murdered man than among the corpses on their way to the Plague pit?When a supposed Plague victim is found with a knife in his back, John Grey, now a successful lawyer, is called in to investigate.

Somebody has killed once trying to obtain it - and is prepared to kill again.
