    Summary

    The border between Gondal and Gaaldine is a turbulent land, ruled by blood and feud and whose mailed fist strikes hardest. The five short days of the Pentecost Truce offer the only interval of peace in the Border year. For the first time Charis sits in her mother's place as President of the Truce, and everyone is watching, waiting for her to make a mistake.

    Forbidden love flourishes amid the licence of the truce fair, and no-one is who he -- or, for that matter, she -- seems.

    Summary

    Sherlock, Crown Prince of Gaaldine, is a marked man. His brother has proclaimed him an outlaw and decreed that those who knowingly assist him will share his fate. But, five years ago, under the guise of the consumptive Mr Verney, Sherlock rescued the life-savings of one Martha Hudson, widow, in the town of Sancta Maria inter Prata. Mrs Hudson always repays her debts. Even when that involves facing up to Lord Moran, the most ruthless assassin in the three kingdoms.

    Summary

    Gondal, 1670. The Court is a hot-bed of rumour, gossip and barely restrained tensions.

    Queen Felicia worries. She worries about her inability to conceive a child, about her husband's wandering eye, about the ambitions of the heir-presumptive, Prince James and - most of all, perhaps - about what "that Royal brat", the fifteen-year-old hostage Prince Sherlock of Gaaldine, is going to spring on them all next.

    A shot rings out across an autumnal lake in North-Eastern Gondal. But at whom was the gun truly aimed, and how many decades will it take before its echoes finally die?

    Summary

    David Hebron grows up on a secluded country estate as a ward of the Abbey of Norburyness, kept in ignorance of his true origins, his very name selected from the Bible by random chance. As he passes from boyhood to adulthood a sequence of apparently chance events begin to show him who he is and what he has the potential to become. Others, though, also have plans. For them, David Hebron represents an new battlefield in the unending struggles between Gondal and Gaaldine, aristocracy and monarchy, religious tolerance and repression. On a bridge above a rushing beck in the mountainous North-East corner of Gaaldine David Hebron is about to come face to face with a member of his true family for the first time. The consequences will shake kingdoms to their foundations.

    Argosy of Ragusa, crew (as usual) arguing

    Salt pork, cabbages,
    Brandywine and small beer and passengers in bed

    – Trad. arr caulkhead

    Lord Lestrade of Gondal, eloping from the Kingdom of Naples with Sally Donovan, a merchant's daughter, takes passage aboard the Santa Gertrude for the risky winter passage of the Straits of Otranto. When the ship's cat takes a fancy to the contents of Lord Lestrade's sea-chest, all that stands between the Santa Gertrude's crew and the wrath of the most hot-tempered aristocrat in the three kingdoms are the quick wits of the master's mate. Fortunately, he may almost be as brilliant as the ship-owner's son believes.

    For kalypso, on her birthday.

    Summary

    An ill-assorted party of English travellers arrive in Gaaldine, on the very edge of Europe, where tensions and buried secrets in the party are about to erupt in bloody murder. And murders happening on Palace premises are very much matters of interest to Sherlock, Crown Prince of Gaaldine, whatever the head of Palace Security thinks about high-born amateurs trespassing on his patch.

    Summary

    From the shore at Aulis to the palace in Gaaldine, to be a princess is to be a sacrifice.

    In a remote country residence Master Ripley, a physician famed for his knowledge of frenzy and melancholia, tends a distraught woman broken by the ruthless dynastic politics of her House. The unexpected arrival of her kinsman the Crown Prince is a catalyst which forces Ridley to recognise the brooding evil at the root of his patient's malady, a curse which has poisoned the lives of four generations and which sits so close to the Crown that treason itself ceases to be a relevant consideration.

    Meanwhile, death, fire and destruction creep inland from the sea, and the wind is changing.

    Summary

    While John and Sherlock have been spying and building alliances up on the Northern border of Gaaldine, various tensions are coming to a head in Brendelhame, the provincial capital. The last day of the Crown Princess Charis's solo visit to the city coincides with a local festival to celebrate the defeat of a Gondalian force there two centuries earlier. At which point a rigidly moralistic Bishop, who sees all tactics as legitimate in the war against Sin, decides to preach a sermon on the evils of the sexes straying from their God-appointed spheres. With a drink-fuelled mob on the rampage and numerous competing factions ready to take advantage of any opening all hell is about to break loose.

    Summary

    "How's a woman supposed to prove her husband's a murderer, dammit?"

    On the eve of a planned voyage to Brittany, Marjorie Jameson starts her day with no problems more pressing than forcing a boatyard to do an emergency repair to the family yacht. A chance encounter at the Cowes hi-speed ferry terminal begins to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder, with her charming, untrustworthy husband Julian right at the centre and Marjorie as the next intended victim.

    But no-one's going to trust the word of an aging housewife whose complaints of abuse the police have previously dismissed as delusions.
