In Chisholm's eighth series entry (after A Chorus of Innocents), tensions run high in 1592 Britain. Still pining for his (married) love, Sir Robert Carey has finally secured his place as deputy warden at the Borders at Carlisle, though not without incurring some enemies. There are rumblings of Spanish plans for action in Scotland, and as the Elizabethan political machine grinds into high gear, with various royal members caught in the wheels, Sir Robert must stay out of the way.
