The seventh book in a thrilling series of mediaeval mysteries by C.B Hanley.

Christmas, 1218: Conisbrough is shrouded in deep snow and a stranger's body is found frozen to death.

Edwin and his friend Martin undertake a perilous winter journey to discover that Joanna stands accused of a heinous crime; if convicted, she will be burned at the stake.

A furious Martin is determined to clear Joanna's name even if it means resorting to violence. Edwin must control him while attempting to solve a puzzle he is only seeing at second hand; he knows nothing of any of the locals and can only work with the conflicting stories they tell him. Their vicious accusations and unshakeable belief that Joanna is guilty might result in her being killed by gossip, so Edwin must find out what really happened before it is too late …
