To add to Smalacombe’s concerns, this is the first major case for his new sergeant, DS Emily Corndon – young, beautiful, intelligent, and highly ambitious. But as Emily appraises Smalacombe, her superior, as an unsophisticated country boy, far removed from her background, can the pair work together to solve the murders of the wealthy businessman and school teacher so recently found? As the DCI and his young sergeant find themselves investigating a web of business intrigue, a string of affairs, casual relationships and suspicion of corruption, the pair begin to wonder whether the two crimes are connected, and if so, why were the bodies found forty miles apart? Perhaps this is what the murderer intended…

As his personal story is slowly revealed, little by little, we confront the great questions of the cosmos and of the human heart, some questions with answers and others without.

And now, he's returned from war-leaner, tougher, callused in body and soul, longing for his wife and the child he has never seen.

For now Galeran has a rival, Raymond of Lowick, an ambitious nobleman who wants everything Galeran had-his lands, his castle, and his wife. He'll use any means and any deceit to gain control over Jehanne. But, Galeran is not a man to give up, no matter what powerful allies Raymond may have.
