The text below is taken from a description by TSR on the reverse of the actual product:

'The Bedine witch Ruha has left the parched sea of Anauroch on her quest to become a Harper.  That quest takes her to Elversult, where she must prove herself by discovering who has poisoned Lady Yanseldara.  Simple enough.  Find the poison and track the poisoner.
Simple...until the Cult of the Dragon, a Shou Prince , an oriental merchant, and an ancient dracolich get involved.
As Ruha soon discovers, life is never simple for a Harper, and poisoner's plots hold more treacherous twists than the tail of a Shou dragon'.

This is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding Forgotten Realms novels I have ever read!  The book is filled with a well thoughtout plot containing a few nice twists.  The book never really slows down and you constantly get the feeling of terror and anxiety.  At a few points the author describes certain nail-biting situations so well that you feel that it had happened to you!  Various different locations are visited and the descriptions really do bring the scene to life.  The climax to the plot also lives up to the quality reading as that of the rest of the book.  With a variety of numerous main characters, the various well-detailed and atmospheric locations and an excellent villain (which I kind of felt sorry for!) this book is highly recommended!
