At the beginning of the story of the book, it is depicted that Crispin Guest returns home late in the night and discovers a dead body hanging from the London Bridge. He attempts to rescue the body, but fails. He notices that the man is an armorer who used to run a shop nearby the bridge. When this news spreads on the streets, people begin to suspect that he might have committed suicide.
But, Crispin Guest, who has now become famous as The Tracker because of his excellent mystery solving skills, seems pretty much unconvinced that it is a case of suicide. Later, Crispin learns that the armorer had told one of his old friends named Thomas Saunfayl that he will be providing him something that will help him beat everyone else in the battlefield.
This something seemed to have been acquired by the armorer with a small amount. It is the belief among the royal and common people that the person who will possess the spear will become invincible.
