Duke Alasdair Trebule and the city Masters begin their investigation into Northern Vitral’s most important murder in hundreds of years – and the trail seems to be leading to the last person they’d suspect.
A fascination with the Sea King’s snakeskin boots leads Gordon to have the most exciting night of his life when he witnesses the most important event in Northern Vitral’s history. But who would believe what he saw?
Winston and his people arrive in Dockside only to find the situation is much, much worse than he anticipated. Battle is joined and Neville bites off more than he can chew.
Winston survives a dangerous encounter with a little help from a friend, then makes a possibly career- and life-ending decision. Neville receives the most improbable of invitations.
