The Year is 1370. The main characters are the Duke of Lancaster's spy Owen Archer and Geoffrey Chaucer. This book takes place in Wales where the two have gone to recruit archers and inspect the Duke's fortifications. An unexpected death sets the two on a hunt for the killer.

This book is not quite as good as the previous ones as Archer's wife, Lucie, is left at home and her involvment in his cases adds an interesting twist which isn't present here. If you like Ellis Peters' books, you like this one.
