Sister Fidelma is thrown into a sinister mystery full of intrigue, danger and violence in Peter Tremayne's fourth Celtic mystery.

One hand clasps a crucifix; tied to the other arm is a pagan death symbol... A merchant ship is encountered under full sail on the high seas off the Irish coast. But the crew and cargo have vanished - as if by sorcery... Whose is the body in the well? Where is the crew of the vessel? Are these bizarre events connected? And if so, who is responsible?
