The Queen's Man: A Medieval Mystery

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of our premier historical novelists introduces a series of marvelous medieval mysteries featuring Justin de Quincy, Eleanor of Acquitaine's trusted detective.

"Full of swordplay, bawdy byplay, and derring-do". — The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Penman writes about the medieval world and its people with vigor, compassion and clarity". — San Francisco Chronicle

Epiphany, 1193. Eleanor of Acquitaine's beloved son Richard Lionheart is missing, perhaps dead, and the court whispers that her younger son John is plotting to seize the crown.

Meanwhile, on the snowy highroad from Winchester, a fortuneless young man falls heir to a bloodstained letter, pressed into his hand by a dying man. The missive becomes Justin de Quincy's passport into the queen's confidence — and into the heart of danger, as he pursues a brutal and cunning murderer and jousts with secret traitors in Eleanor's court.

With the same sure touch she has brought to her historical fiction, Sharon Kay Penman turns to the mystery form in "The Queen's Man", her most exciting novel yet.
