Kirkus Reviews The fourth crime novel set in twelfth-century Kent reunites Abbesse Helewise and Richard the Lionheart's knight Josse d'Acquin in a rich and compelling mystery.

The young beautiful Galena and her husband, the much older Ambrose are trying for a child but to no avail. When Josse d'Acquin tells her of the healing waters of Hawkenlye she is overjoyed and sets off with her escort. But she arrives alone. A few days later her husband, befuddled and unwell, arrives and within hours she dies in agony on the infirmary floor. On examination it appears she has been poisoned and that she was pregnant after all. Josse and Helewise are determined to solve the riddle of her death even if it leads themselves also into danger.
