It was the death, some say murder, of one of the greatest preachers, teachers and mystics of the time. How could so famous a Friar Preacher die and there be no record? A death, kept hidden by time and an oath of secrecy; that now needed to be disclosed. How did he die? Where was he buried? These are the questions Gottfried faces as he unravels the political intrigue and social struggles at play in the death of Master Eckhart. At the dawn of the Renaissance this adventurer must find his clues amid the shards of a waning Medieval Christendom. The Avignon papacy and Holy Roman emperor, the growing wealth of the merchants and the dwindling power of the nobles, these are all factors in the tragic mystery that Gottfried must solve. At the same time he discovers divine consolation, in the midst of suffering he learns the lesson of life.
