When the medicine proves fatal to toward of the Lord Chancellor of England, Owen Archer, formerly Captain of Archers, is ordered to York to find out what happened. For his cover, Archer goes to work for Apothecary Wilton as an apprentice, and falls in love with the ambitious Lucie, Wilton's wife. As Archer unravels the complicated mystery, he is pained to find that Lucie must be considered one of the suspects. And when he hears at last the tragic history behind the murders, Archer is not at all sure how justice is to be served.
