In John J Spearman’s enthralling mystery novel, FitzDuncan, the illegitimate son of an Earl sets out to solve a perplexing mystery that could cost him his life. Unlike other members of the nobility in the kingdom of Aquileia, Casimir “Caz” FitzDuncan has to fend for himself. After serving in the army for seven years, he returns to the kingdom’s capital. Freddy, a friend from school, requests his help in exposing a swindler and winning back his ring which Freddy had lost in a game of cards. After he successfully gains it back, Freddy refers other people who need similar help to Caz. A young woman approaches him to help her flee from a forced marriage. Soon after, she is abducted and Caz is held responsible for her disappearance. Caz and Freddy follow her trail, hoping to find the real kidnapper and clear Caz of the crime.
