In the summer of 1448, when Sir Ralph Woderove is found murdered near
his estate, not even his family mourns. A hard, vicious man of many
quarrels, Sir Ralph could have been killed by almost anyone. And though
the consensus is that his soul has surely gone to Hell, Sir Ralph will
continue to infuriate his heirs in death through the grossly inadequate
terms of his estate's settlement.

It falls to Dame Frevisse to escort Sir Ralph's widow and daughter back
to their manor, when another death occurs under questionable
circumstances - making it clear that not all grievances have been laid
to rest. And as family secrets are dragged out into the light, Dame
Frevisse realizes that there is a murderer among them who will not rest
until the Woderove legacy has been settled once and for all...

"Beautifully written and captures the essence of the characters in a
way that's bittersweet as well as accurate." - The Best Reviews

"Frazer's latest will please both Frevisse afficionados and historical mystery readers new to the series." - Booklist
