When the Archbishop of Myrridia is murdered, Duke Chris McCabe and Duchess Helen Lattimore investigate his death. Little do they suspect they will find themselves caught up in international intrigue, including attempts against their own lives.

When Myrridia's archbishop, Francis McHenry, is murdered, a Dark Magical Practitioner becomes involved in the investigation, an investigation that leads to his abducting and raping a woman during a ritual. Return to the political intrigue of Debra Killeen's Myrridia in "Legacy of the Archbishop: Volume 3 of The Myrridian Cycle" (ISBN 9780982060513, Helm Publishing, 2009).

Archbishop Edward Fitzroy wants his predecessor's murderer found. King Robert of Myrridia sends his trusted friends, Duke Chris McCabe and Chris's wife, Helen Lattimore, to investigate the murder. Meanwhile, a Dark Magical Practitioner, Aldric Smithson, also finds himself interested in the murder. During his own investigation, Aldric discovers Nicole, another Magical Practitioner, whom he abducts, rapes, and begets twins upon.

Chris McCabe makes progress in investigating the archbishop's murder. He soon learns one of the monastery's novices poisoned the Primate of Myrridia. But before Chris can reveal his findings, he is attacked on his way home; he manages to defeat and slay all his attackers, save one--the man who poisoned the archbishop.

Meanwhile, Aldric has additional evil plans. Wishing to stop Chris's investigation, he captures Chris and invades his mind. Aldric discovers Chris's secret--that Chris has been impersonating the Duke of Saelym, who was actually slain a couple years prior. Chris is left insane from the encounter while Aldric prepares to do further battle. A duel between Light and Dark magic approaches; this time, it looks certain that evil will triumph in Myrridia.

Readers will finish the book impatient for the fourth volume in "The Myrridian Cycle."
