Mired in grief for his mother, the boy learns his given name, Crispin, from the village priest, although his presumably dead fathers identity remains obscure. The words etched on his mothers treasured lead cross may provide some clue, but the priest is murdered before he can tell the illiterate lad what they say. Worse, Crispin is fingered for the murder by the manor steward, who declares him a wolfs head wanted dead or alive, preferably dead. Crispin flees, and falls in with a traveling juggler. I have no name, Crispin tells Bear, whose rough manners and appearance mask a tender heart.

No home, no kin, no place in this world. How the boy learns his true identity (hes the bastard son of the lord of the manor) and finds his place in the world makes for a rattling fine yarn. Avis plot is engineered for maximum thrills, with twists, turns and treachery aplenty, but its the compellingly drawn relationship between Crispin and Bear that provides the heart of this story.
