Two young girls plot a murder by witchcraft. Soon afterwards a government clerk dies in mysterious circumstances. His colleague James Marwood is asked to investigate. Meanwhile, architect Cat Hakesby is working for a merchant who lives on Slaughter Street, where the air smells of blood and a captive Barbary lion prowls the stables. Then a prestigious new commission arrives. Cat must design a Poultry House for the woman that the King loves most in all the world. At the heart of this lies a secret so explosive it could not only rip apart England but change the entire face of Europe.
