By Bernard Knight, dramatised by Arnold Evans.
Devon, 1195, and the effusive coroner Sir John de Wolfe, aided by his long suffering clerk, investigates mysterious murders among the complex relationships of the tin-mining community.
And if this wasn't enough to occupy them, the unlikely duo need to address some personal issues.
