Crispin Guest, an astute herbalist and physician, possesses a sharp wit and a keen eye for detail.

Crispin must sift through a labyrinth of alibis, conflicting testimonies, and hidden motives to expose the killer.

The discovery of an ancient herbal manuscript, rumored to contain deadly secrets, further complicates the investigation.
