"Here is an enigma, Gareth, and it's my job to unravel enigmas. Besides, consider her eyes - you know my weakness for fine jewels" - Lord Chief Justice Oakley


Crimson Leaf is a murder mystery set in a time and place very remote from here and now.


It is the story of seventeen-year-old Crown Prince Travis who, when orphaned by a double murder, celebrates his freedom from a loveless and strict upbringing by running riot with his teenage friends. Travis doesn't curb his behavior until warned by his elderly guardian, Gareth, and then threatened by the Lord Chief Justice.


It is also the story of Lyssia and Albion, the last of the mysterious Guardians. Following Travis' coronation, a new

sword master and a maid start work at the palace. Not long after, the king's brothers and sister are subject to

murder attempts. It seems that a complex plot threatens the entire royal family.


In a race to find the murderer before he strikes again, the Guardians and the king's advisors become

dangerously at odds.


Meanwhile, Travis goes on a clandestine mission that will lead him to the unimaginable truth.
