"A mistress of the art of death novel"--Cover.
England, 1176. Beautiful, tranquil Glastonbury Abbey -- one of England's holiest sites, believed by some to be King Arthur's sacred Isle of Avalon -- has been burned almost to the ground. The arsonist remains at large, but the fire has uncovered something shocking: two hidden skeletons, a man and a woman. Are the bones those of Arthur and Guinevere? King Henry II hopes so. He calls on Adelia Aguilar, Mistress of the Art of Death, to examine them.
