Summary
"In 1204 A.D., with the Fools' Guild fighting for its existence against a Papal threat, Theophilos the Fool is sent to recruit a former troubadour turned abbot back to the cause. Upon arrival at the monastery, however, he finds that the abbot is unwilling. That night, a monk's body is found in the library, his throat slit and his blood used to scrawl a cryptic message on the walls." "To save the Guild, Theophilos, along with his jester wife, Claudia, their apprentice, Helga, and their daughter, Portia, must plunge into a journey that will carry them to the mediaeval cities of Marseille and Montpellier, seeking clues from the abbot's past, clues buried in old memories, old stories, old songs, and old graves. And when another man is killed, they realise they are not the only ones in the hunt. Now they must unravel both the mystery behind the murder and the message in order to reach their elusive quarry first - or find themselves the latest prey."--BOOK JACKET
