Christmas 1594.

Tom is called away from the dress rehearsal of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' to receive terrible news: his brother John has been found dead, frozen with terror in the branches of a tree.

Rumour has it that the Barguest, a mythical monstrous hound, is loose on the Scottish Borders . . .

Tom rides north to investigate - only to find himself embroiled in a dark, deadly political conspiracy, where even his swordsmanship and logic may not help him...

Can Tom solve the mystery of his brother's death?

Or is there more than meets the eye to this Midwinter Murder?
