Then one Gervase Bonel, who had planned to leave his valuable manor house to the Abbey in exchange for a house run by the monks where his comfort will be guaranteed for life, is poisoned with Cadfael's own concoction intended for aching joints. As the monk investigates he finds a web of family intrigue, where suspicion has fallen on someone he is certain is innocent.
