Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shortly before his unexpected coronation, King Richard passed a law letting all of England's prisoners go free. Shortly afterwards, a young nun is found gruesomely murdered. Richard swiftly employs an old military colleague of his, Josse d'Acquin, to unravel this hideous mystery. Josse goes to Hawkenlye Abbey to find out the answers to these questions, and together with Abbess Helewise, they must find the murderer quickly, or they'll have the King of England to answer to.

Synopsis:

When a young nun is found murdered, King Richard employs an old colleague, Josse d'Acquin, to find the killer. He has little success until he meets an amateur sleuth - Abbess Helewise. This is the first title in a series of medieval mysteries, set around the Great Forest in the Weald of Kent.

Synopsis:

IN A SACRED PLACE, UNHOLY PASSIONS LEAD TO MURDER...

Sunlight shone on the dark crimson blood, making it shine like a jewel...thus the body of Gunnora, a young nun from Hawkenlye Abbey, is found with her throat cut. Felons have been released from English prisons at the command of the new king, Richard Plantagenet, and suspicion centers on them. But when Josse d'Acquin, the king's knight, arrives from France to investigate, he discovers treacherous currents of lust, greed, and anger flowing closer to the Abbey, and in the haunted Weald of Kent, whose woods hide strange secrets...

With the help of the worldly, beautiful Abbess Helewise, Josse ferrets out an array of suspects. Their one precious piece of evidence is a gold, rubied cross. But the shocking truth of Gunnora's death is an elusive — and far more dangerous — prize.
