But for some, attentions are focused elsewhere. Rumours about a hidden secret from James's past are circulating - a secret that could put the King and members of the court in danger. After rescuing King James from a run-away horse, the enigmatic Tam Eildor finds himself in the monarch's favour. When Margaret Agnew, the Queen's midwife, is found murdered, Tam and his good friend Tansy Scott set about discovering who could have attacked her and why. But as the King's new object of affection, Tam has become the target for jealous courtiers and their attentions are seriously hampering his investigations. Why was Margaret Agnew murdered? There seems to be no motive for the crime. Could it simply be a case of mistaken identity and, if so, is Tansy's life under threat? Is the disappearance of Margaret's lover significant and could her death be related to James's mysterious secret? What is certain is that dangerous forces are at work, forces that will lead the King away from the palace and to Gowrie House in Perth, into the heart of a mystery that puzzles historians today
