(From the publisher):
When the King of Histria invites Claudia to visit, she assumes it's as a wine merchant. How wrong can she be? And, before long, all manner of assumptions are proved false. The more Claudia learns about Histrian society, the more deeply involved she becomes in the tragedy unfolding within it. Worse, why does no one believe her when she tells them she witnessed a murder?
