Herman Beasley, known as the finest wood craftsman in England, enjoys making furniture for the villagers of Barnswallow. But in 1486, Herman’s peaceful life takes an unexpected turn.

Soon, he finds himself entangled—along with a determined forensic specialist and a friend—in a complex mystery that began to unravel well before his time.
