The first day of a job is never easy, but for apprentice hangman Vincent Knott, it couldn’t be worse.
Nervous, studious and sweet by nature, Vincent is desperate to avoid performing his first execution- even moreso after meeting the charming, foolish and condemned student wizard Will Sharpe, who is set to hang the following morning. But is Will guilty of the despicable magical crime he’s been accused of, or is he a single unwitting thread in a terribly tangled truth?
Aided by his best friend, conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Eliza Swift, Vincent has just one night to unravel the mystery, before he and Will are due their deadly appointment on the gallows.
