Product description

Book Description

Deep mid-winter, 1172, and an assassin is on the loose...

From the Inside Flap

Trysts, treachery and turmoil

Since she solved a particularly nasty case of child murder using her forensic skills, Adelia Aguilar is deemed too valuable to send back to the School of Medicine in Salerno where she was trained. Instead, King Henry II has decided to keep her in England. This is bad news for Adelia – in free-thinking Salerno, women doctors are accepted, but they are unheard of in twelfth-century England and regarded as witches. Under suspicion, and with an illegitimate child, Adelia is forced to live and practise in the secrecy of Cambridgeshire’s fenland.

But at Henry’s court, terrible things are happening. Queen Eleanor is not only stirring up revolt against her husband, but rumour has it that she has also poisoned Fair Rosamund Clifford - the King’s favourite mistress. If Henry believes the stories, England will be torn apart as King battles Queen.

In a race against time to prove Eleanor is innocent of Rosamund’s murder, Adelia is recruited by Rowley, her former lover and father of her child. It isn’t easy. An assassin is on the loose and so is Queen Eleanor with an army of supporters. Adelia has never faced greater danger as she desperately tries to extract the truth from a maze of lies. The armies that might cause civil war lie behind her. The icy winds of a dreadful winter blow around her. And ahead she must brave the impenetrable labyrinth that surrounds Fair Rosamund’s tower, and decipher the mystery of the dead woman who lies frozen within.
