Love, hope, betrayal, and intrigue - Sabine Martin makes the Middle Ages come alive

Rottweil, 1340. Former hangwoman Melisande is leading a happy life with her husband, Wendel, her daughter, and her son. That is, until she receives a cry for help from a stranger who claims to be her brother, Rudger. But Rudger is dead; she herself executed the murderer who brought her Rudger's bloody sword. Was he lying? Is Rudger still alive? Supposedly, her brother is innocently imprisoned in the dungeon of Esslingen, and only she can save him.

Since her husband is currently in Reutlingen on a business trip, Melisande leaves her children with a friend and travels incognito to Esslingen to break into the dungeon and free the stranger. Initially, she succeeds. The stranger does seem to be her brother. But then they are attacked and captured by a gang of bandits who demand that Melisande kill the son of her arch-enemy de Bruce - and in such a way that it looks like a natural death.
