A Mortal Bane by Roberta Gellis

Roberta Gellis, acclaimed author ofThe Roselynde Chronicles,brings medieval London to life--and death--with her latest tale of splendor and squalor. Magdalene la Bacirc;tarde is the madam of the Old Priory Guesthouse in Southwark. She and her women are expected to engage in a number of sinful delights, but bloody murder isnt one of them--until Baldassare, the messenger, dies. Though Baldassare wasnt a regular client of the Old Priory Guesthouse, Magdalene and her women refuse to allow his death to go unavenged. Of course, their efforts arent completely altruistic. Chances are if they dont find the killer, they will be assumed guilty because they are whores, and they will be gutted and hanged. Into this sea of intrigue steps the handsome Sir Bellamy of Itchen. The bishop of Winchester, who was served for many years by Baldassare, orders Bellamy, his most trusted knight, to investigate the murder and tells him that Magdalene has been accused of the crime. Bellamy is instantly captivated by his chief suspect but is also convinced that she is hiding something. Sure that she is involved in the messengers death right up to her beautiful eyebrows but unable to believe shes a killer, Bellamy must find out how and why Baldassare died--or watch the mysterious Magdalene meet her fate on the gallows.
