One of the earlier books in the series, Frevisse's cousin Alice, wife of the earl of Suffolk, is knee-deep in politics. Young King Henry is trying to broker peace with France, and they are close to it - but one of France's demands is the release of the war prisoner the Duke of Orleans. Henry's uncle and heir the Duke of Gloucester is adamantly opposed to his release, so Bishop Beaufort and Suffolk are trying to sneak Orleans into the palace to see the king in order to cement the deal. But one of Alice's messengers is found dead, so Frevisse is asked to take his place. Then an attempt is made at Orleans's life, and Frevisse now has to find the traitor before he strikes again. Frazer's in-depth research and excellent characterization make this an absorbing tale.
