Historical Novel Set During Reign of Henry II

Mistress of the Art of Death, a new novel by Ariana Franklin, has been released from Putnam. The story is set in 1171, during the reign of England's King Henry II, based around murders taking place in Cambridge.

In this review on Blogspot.com, Carlo Wolff describes it as "a thriller that reimagines the England of Henry II so deeply it makes us reconsider history itself...a spellbinding yarn of pageantry, intrigue, sharp character studies and provocative themes."
