Description



About the Book



Set in medieval England, this chilling novel combines the best of modern forensic thrillers with the drama of historical fiction, as a mistress of the art of death--an early version of a medical examiner--arrives in Cambridge from Italy to investigate the suspicious deaths of four children.



Book Synopsis



The national bestselling hit hailed by the New York Times as a vibrant medieval mystery...[it] outdoes the competition.

In medieval Cambridge, England, Adelia, a female forensics expert, is summoned by King Henry II to investigate a series of gruesome murders that has wrongly implicated the Jewish population, yielding even more tragic results. As Adelia's investigation takes her behind the closed doors of the country's churches, the killer prepares to strike again.
