In this historical murder mystery, Makoud, a middle-aged apothecary, has come to Malaga with his family to work. Shortly after they arrive the khalifa Yahya I dies and there are rumours that he was poisoned. Makoud is worried that the poison used by the assassins was bought from his shop. His son, Umar, now a soldier in the khalifa’s army, decides to investigate but he underestimates the power of the people behind the assassination, and instead he finds himself arrested and accused of murder. His father, family and friends pool all their resources to try to help him but the closer they get to the truth, the greater the danger they are all in. In the first novel in a new historical series set in Moorish Spain, Joan Fallon sets the action in the busy medieval port of Malaga. Following on from the successful al-Andalus series, we meet up again with the younger members of the family who had escaped from the besieged city of Cordoba.
