A remote and insignificant archaeological dig raises a series of unanswered questions and leads to the discovery of several important English paintings. Sir Nigel Thomas, painter, and Ligeia Gordon, award-winning actress, attempt to piece together a lost story dating back to the seizing of the throne by Henry Tudor. In the period that followed, under Henry VIII, ninety percent of English art was destroyed. Are the paintings discovered by Sir Nigel and Ligeia rare survivors? Did they come from the ruins of Bickering Hall?
In this third outing for the unconventional couple, can they be certain of anything they are told?
