Review:

"'a genuinely suspenseful and well written piece of narrative'. - The Spectator"

"'succeeds brilliantly in combining page-turning intensity with eye-opening insights' Sunday Times"

"'Jager knows his territory well; we learn a good deal about medieval armor and weaponry, fashion and custom, the legal system and sexual ideas, court politics and religion. His skilful prose quickly ensnares readers in the web of the characters' invention, allowing no escape until very near the end- Sex, savagery, and high-level political maneuvers energize a splendid piece of popular history.' Kirkus Reviews"

"'A riveting account that will satisfy general readers and historians alike.' Publishers Weekly'As enthralling and engrossing as any [story] about a high-profile celebrity scandal today.' Booklist (starred)"

From the Publisher:

An engrossing work of historical intrigue in the tradition of Barbara Tuchmann's A Distant Mirror and Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose
