    In the time of Richard Lionheart, Josse d'Acquin and the Abbess Helewise have formed a deep friendship. When a man dies of poisoning at an inn known for the quality of its food, Josse seeks Helewise's counsel, although she is weak from a bout of fever. The murder leads Josse to discover a defiant, widowed noblewoman named Joanna and her son, Ninian, hiding from an insinuating cousin of Joanna's, Denys de Courtenay. A second murder, of a local wisewoman with ties to Joanna, quickens the plot. Josse and Joanna succumb to their passionate attraction for each other; meanwhile, the skeins of the mystery--Ninian's parentage, Denys' veiled threats to the abbey--come together spectacularly. Clare expertly handles the vivid Ninian and the resourceful Joanna, but it is the intellectual, reasoned, and devoted interplay between Josse and Helewise that is most intriguing and most appealing. A fine addition to the growing number of mystery series based in English history. ((Reviewed May 1, 2002)) Copyright 2002Booklist Reviews
