Eamon Goodhand, promoted to the rank of Hand at a speed he can scarcely credit, is regarded with suspicion by many of his fellow officers. Nevertheless, his abilities - particularly in interrogation of prisoners - are prized by his superiors. But Eamon conceals a fatal secret: he is sworn to both Eldered, master of the city of Dunthruik, and to Hughan, rightful king of the land. Whoever he serves, his name will be traitor. As tensions and military skirmishes increase, Eamon finds himself trusted by both his masters. How can he possibly maintain his integrity, act justly to his fellow officers of the Gauntlet, and act on behalf of all the warring people of the land?
