Isaac and his family travel to Perpignan to attend the wedding of the daughter of an old friend.
This is an excellent series set in 14th-century Spain. The sleuth is Isaac, a blind Jewish physician. He is often accompanied by his two assistance, his daughter Raquel, and a young moorish boy Yusuf who is apprenticed to him. Isaac and his family find themselves caught up in political and religious intrigue.
Isaac of Girona returns in the two-time Anthony Award-nominated series. Isaac's duty to the ailing Bishop postpones his daughter's wedding. But murder can't be rescheduled when a wounded messenger dies before delivering an urgent missive for the Bishop.
Girona, Spain, 1353. Struggling to save his patients from the plague, and avoiding the even greater danger of his wife's temper, blind Isaac discovers that pestilence isn't the city's only killer. A nun dies in the public baths. Then it is revealed that she is not a nun at all, but an attendant to the queen in nun's disguise. The Bishop of Girona calls upon Isaac to help determine the strange circumstance of her death--and the purpose of her deception. But Isaac soon finds himself and his family caught in a tightening web of royal intrigue designed to destroy the Spanish monarchy--and whoever else gets in the way. First in a medieval mystery series.
