A magical murder mystery, complete with medieval mayhem!
Poison in the prince’s pork tenderloin claims the life of his hapless taster. A dagger to the heart slays the sleeping court sorcerer, tasked to investigate. With courtiers seemingly falling like ninepins, the prince’s chancellor turns to Mistress Sinta, a gifted freelance sorceress, to assume the role of detective.
With the aid of Sir Othir, her dashing man-at-arms, Sinta plunges into the murk of the princely court, where—while enjoying some tasty meals—she soon finds that spells alone will not uncover the answers she seeks.
Can our inquisitive young heroine crack the case before herself falling victim to the killer?
