Philip hopes to break the peace with England by discovering some scandal touching the young English heir. With the disturbing death of Lady Eleanor, who is found with her neck broken at the foot of a convent staircase, the Prince's secrets are threatened with exposure. Edward sends Corbett to investigate, and the clerk discovers knots of scandal and deceit that may entangle the English Crown.
