Owen Archer's four assignment is an intriguing adventure. He has been ordered by the Archbishop of York to accompany a churchly delegation that is seeking information concerning an upcoming nomination for a bishopric by King Edward IV. It seems a simple enough matter, but before they can set off on their journey, a young page is found dead. It is officially labeled as "accidental," but immediately after, another death is discovered and this time a friend of Owen's is accused of the murder, and all signs point to his guilt. This is a story of Owen's defense of his friend, of the political intrigue at Edward's court, the struggle between church and state, and much more! This is author Candace Robb's fourth Owen Archer adventure and well worth the trip!
