Sir Baldwin Furnshill and Bailiff Simon Puttock have been granted leave to go on pilgrimage, both seeking solace after the recent, traumatic events in Gidleigh.
Together they travel across Europe to Santiago de Compostela but, as usual, danger is never far away.
A beautiful young girl is found raped and murdered on a hillside.
Baldwin and Simon lend their investigative skills to the local enquiry, but the unexpected appearance of a face from Baldwin's past threatens both the investigation and Baldwin's very future.
