Ireland, AD 659. Sister Fidelma is in her final year of study at Brehon Morann's law school, and en route to visit an old friend, Luach, in her family home. But things take a sinister turn when Fidelma arrives to discover that Luach has been missing for five days. Has someone driven her from the enclave of her home, or are there darker forces at work?
The deeper Fidelma digs, the more questions she unearths. It's clear that there is far more to Luach's disappearance than those closest to her are letting on, and only Fidelma has the conviction to pursue the case . . .
