Market day, and the inn at Tonbridge has been busy since early morning. As night closes in, a man lies dying in the guest chamber, poisoned by a piece of pie made by Goody Anne herself. Josse d'Acquin, a regular vistor to the tavern and an admirer of Mistress Anne's culinary skills, arrives to investigate. He discovers wolf's bane in the remnants of the pie. And learns that, among all the strangers through the tavern that day, one stood out - a charming, handsome nobleman, who asked for the same chicken and vegetable pie. . . When he fails to persuade the Sheriff that the death is suspicious, Josse turns to his old friend, Abbess Helewise. Weakened from a severe bout of fever, she nonetheless provides a thread of common sense as Josse follows the trail of murder into the great Wealden Forest, and finds something there that will change his life forever...
