Nicholas Fetterlock is the son of a wool merchant in the English Cotswolds. He is soon to be married and travels with his father and foster-brother Hal, to meet the family of his betrothed. All seems well. But soon odd things begin happening: bags of wool are going missing and appearing in foreign markets stuffed with rubbish. And the Lombards, to whom his father is in debt, are acting secretive and appearing in odd locations. Leach, his father's packer, has built a large barn, which he keeps under lock and key. His father's business is in trouble and Nicholas, with the help of his friends, sets out to solve the mystery
