In 15th century Seville, the Spanish Inquisition’s grip on Andalucia tightens, along with its determination to execute heretics, like Isaac Alvarez, who practise Judaism in secret. Queen Isabella supports the Catholic church when it accuses the Jewish community of ritual killings – the ‘blood libel’ – as friends and relatives are arrested and set against each other. Now Isaac must try to save a friend, falsely accused of murder , by tracking down the real killer… As the mystery deepens, can Isaac and his family survive the consequences?
