A murder mystery with a twist of magic.

A rash of mysterious deaths is gripping the city of Kingsford: murders are followed immediately by suicides; the target is almost always a female gypsy or street musician; and the weapon used is always a three-sided dagger - disappearing as mysteriously as the true killer.

With the victims being free-bards and gypsies, the local constable Tal is fighting to have this case taken seriously. Thus he joins forces with Ardis, a Justiciar Mage and Priest of the church: only these two people seem to have noticed that these are not open-and-shut cases and, presented with such a mysterious set of clues, they decide that there must be magecraft at work. With the help of Vysir, a birdman, they must unravel this perplexing case and trace the clues back to an evil, cunning source...
