Leofric is out hunting with his friend Chlodochar when they discover a woman's body in the woods. The woman, Ebba, has been stabbed, but who is the murderer? Suspicion immediately falls upon Wystan, the blacksmith from a nearby camp of wayfarers, families who are on their way to the new lands in Britain.
Eadwig, Leofric's uncle, and Gladewine, elder of the camp, decide to hold a trial. Eight immediate suspects are counted with Gladewine, who is unable to offer an alibi, making up the ninth.
It seems that most of the wayfarers suspect Wystan the blacksmith, as he is a stranger to them, and Eadwig is also keen to find him guilty, for reasons of his own.
Unsure of Wystan's guilt, Leofric thinks up a way to discover the truth. But will his plan work?
Leofric is an intriguing character. He is a man of principle, unwilling to see an innocent man be condemned. Although young, he is a natural leader, not afraid to stand up to his elders and speak out. A likeable character, with sympathy for the murdered woman, Leofric is determined to discover the true murderer and plans a way to discover what really happened. But will his plan work?
While I would not normally read books in this genre, I'm pleased I picked this one. The author has created a fascinating world, painting a vivid picture of the wayfarer's camp and it's inhabitants.. The plot line is well developed, intriguing and unpredictable and kept me guessing until the end. There is humour here too, as the wayfarers joke amongst themselves, as they watch the trial. The characters are everyday people, easy for the reader to identify with.
An excellent read. Highly recommended.
