THE NEW THRILLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF MUNICH, CONCLAVE AND AN OFFICER AND A SPY
Late one afternoon in April in the Year of Our Risen Lord 1468 a solitary traveller was to be observed picking his way on horseback across the wild moorland of that ancient region of south-western England known since Saxon times as Wessex...
1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor.

Fairfax becomes determined to discover the truth. Over the course of the next six days, everything he believes - about himself, his faith and the history of his world - will be tested to destruction.
