January, 1381. As guests of the Regent, John of Gaunt, Brother Athelstan and Sir John Cranston are attending a mystery play performed by the Straw Men, Gaunt's personal acting troupe, at St John's Chapel in the Tower of London when the evening is rudely interrupted by sudden, violent death. Who would have the audacity to murder two of Gaunt's VIP guests and the wherewithal to strategically position two severed heads on the stage without being noticed? The regent orders Athelstan to find out. Could there really be a spy at the heart of the royal court? Could it be the work of the Upright Men, the band of rebels led by Wat Tyler? Whose are the severed heads and what is their significance? Athelstan is about to tackle his most baffling case yet.
