The "richly detailed, almost indecently thrilling" (New York Times) follow up to The Serpent's Tale
When a fire at Glastonbury Abbey reveals two skeletons, rumor has it they may belong to King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. King Henry II hopes so, for it would help him put down a rebellion in Wales, where the legend of Celtic savior Arthur is strong. To make certain, he sends Adelia Aguilar, his Mistress of the Art of Death, to Glastonbury to examine the skeletons.
At the same time, the investigation into the abbey fire will be overseen by the Bishop of St. Albans, father of Adelia's daughter. Trouble is, someone at Glastonbury doesn't want either mystery solved, and is prepared to kill to prevent it...

Ariana Franklin is the pen name of British writer Diana Norman. A bestselling author and former journalist, she lives in England with her husband, the film critic Barry Norman.From AudioFile:
On a mission from King Henry II, forensic physician Adelia Aguilar travels to Glastonbury Abbey to examine two skeletons, allegedly those of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Adelia solves that puzzle, and several more. Kate Reading performs this twelfth-century story with suitable solemnity for a quest assigned by a king. Her slightly squeaky renderings of children's dialogue are the rare break in her formality. While both text and performance of this novel present a dismal picture of life in that era, through it all, Reading's impeccable diction and spot-on phrasing keep the listener engaged with the story.
