On the evening of an impromptu reunion with friends, James and Liam discover a secret code on the pages of a medieval manuscript in Oxford University’s, All Saints College. Moments later, a hooded figure murders the man leading the manuscripts research team and steals it from the laboratory.


While James is in the hospital recovering from a stabbing, he discovers a secret about his past that he was never supposed to know. Instead of nursing his injuries back to health, James decides to leave town and uncover the truth. In the meantime, Detective Alice O’Donnell puts a hold on his passport.

As his investigation digs deeper into the events, James discovers everyone has means, motive, opportunity and something to hide.
