Combining the best of modern forensic thrillers with the
drama of medieval fiction, New York Timesâ€“bestselling
author Ariana Franklin returns with the third title in the
Mistress of the Art of Death series.
1176. Beautiful, tranquil Glastonbury Abbeyâ€” one of
Englandâ€™s holiest sites, and believed by some to be King
Arthurâ€™s sacred Isle of Avalonâ€”has been burned almost to the
ground. The arsonist remains at large, but the fire has
uncovered something even more shocking: two hidden
skeletons, a man and a woman. The skeletonsâ€™ height and age
send rumors flyingâ€”are the remains those of Arthur and
King Henry II hopes so. Struggling to put
down a rebellion in Wales, where the legend of Celtic savior
Arthur is particularly strong, Henry wants definitive proof
that the bones are Arthurâ€™s. If the rebels are sure that the
Once and Future King will not be coming to their aid, Henry
can stamp out the insurgence for good. He calls on Adelia
Aguilar, Mistress of the Art of Death, to examine the
Henryâ€™s summons comes not a moment too soon,
for Adelia has worn out her welcome in Cambridge. As word of
her healing powers has spread, so have rumors of witchcraft.
So Adelia and her household ride to Glastonbury, where the
investigation into the abbey fire will be overseen by the
Church authoritiesâ€”in this case, the Bishop of St. Albans,
who happens also to be the father of Adeliaâ€™s daughter.
