WESTERN WIND, THE

Synopsis

15th century Oakham is a tiny village cut off by a big river with no bridge. When Thomas Newman, the wealthiest, most capable and industrious man in the village, is swept away by the river, an explanation has to be found: accident, suicide or murder? The village priest, John Reve, is privy to many secrets in his role as confessor. But will he be able to unravel what happened to the victim? And what will happen if he can't?
