“Adelia is back in this fourth (and my favorite!) installment of the Mistress of the Art of Death series. King Henry II assigns Adelia to accompany his daughter, Joanna, to Italy for her wedding. Mysterious deaths occur amongst the royal procession, and Adelia is the prime suspect. She must uncover the killer and clear her name before the murderer's ultimate goal is accomplished. Once you start this book you won't want to put it down!”
