From the Publisher:

France, 1145, and the Normandy coast is bracing itself against the approaching autumn Equinox. Terrible storms are brewing, the north wind has frozen beaches and the lower planes are being flooded. Gulls begin to fly inland and shoals of fish and seals swim towards the calmer waters of the mouth of the Seine. Then, one morning, two river watchmen see a fountain of air shoot out of the water. A whale has made its way into the River Seine. They raise a cry, which reaches back to the Forest of Jumieges, and the Abbey bells ring out to call the monks and peasants to the river. Rurik, a tall blond Dane, is hired to kill the whale. This is a superb opening scene! Meanwhile the Chevalier Galeran has called by the Bishop of Lisieux to investigate the Abbot Eustache of the Abbey of Jumieges. There have been rumours of corruption in the Church ... Galeran arrives in town, where the stench of burning whale flesh is still overpowering, to hear of another death: the horrific killing of a young bride on her wedding night. He soon discovers that the town is riddled with theft, corruption, black magic - and murder.

About the Author:

Viviane Moore was born in 1960 in Hong Kong where her father was an architect and her mother a stained-glass artist. At 19 she became a photographer (including a stint as a war photographer) and worked as a journalist for Paris Match. Her main area of interest has always been the Middle Ages and for some time she has devoted herself to writing the Galeran novels full time. She lives in La Rochelle in France. She is delightful and very promotable.
