14th Century Devon: Peter Bruther flees his master, Sir William Beauscyr, in a time when to do so could earn him a brutal punishment.
Having presented himself as a tin miner to the king, who gives him the status of a serf, he is safe from the claims of Sir William.
But when Bruther's body is found hanging from a tree, Simon and Sir Baldwin must investigate a cold-blooded murder.
