A Draught for a Dead Man : Isaac has been invited to Perpignan, to attend the wedding of his friend Davi's son. It is a simple three-day journey by mule, but the visit will not be without danger: the city is fraught with disturbing rumors of shaky alliances. But Isaac must go. His presence is required not only for reasons of friendship; he is also needed for his healing skills - for Arnau Marca, a Christian knight and patient of Davi's, was badly injured during an attack and seeks immediate attention. As Isaac works to heal the wounded man, Arnau struggles to identify his enemy. There is word that a suspicious stranger is near, quite possibly Arnau's attacker. And soon, the wedding festivities are again tainted when an innocent apprentice is murdered. Perhaps he was mistaken for Davi - or even Isaac? Now, Isaac's uncanny ability to discern foul from fair, and Arnau's relentless will to survive, are their only armor against the possibility of more tragedy. . . .
