As preparations for the lavish festivities spiral out of control, and a band of minstrels mock his every move, he scrambles to salvage the city’s coffers from financial ruin. But when the nation’s greatest powers converge on Coventry in the pursuit of lost treasure, Whitfield’s big day may become his last.
