April 1153. The murder of a Welsh peddler's daughter seems small compared to England's King Richard Lionheart in a German prison. Justin is torn between mediating a truce with Richard and his brother John, and investigating the murder.
In the thirteenth century, the Prince of North Wales marries English King John's daughter, Joanna. But the conflict between England and Wales continues. Now, Joanna must decide which man to follow - her father or her husband.
Justin de Quincy has been lured to Paris by his nemesis, Prince John, on a mission of mercy. The prince is suspected in a plot to kill his brother, King Richard. Despite John's hunger for the crown, he's unwilling to Commit regicide---and he wants Justin's help in discrediting the document that implicates him. Justin only concedes to John's request when he realizes that the welfare of the woman he serves, Eleanor of Aquitaine, is also at risk. It is a concession that will take him to a bloody chamber at Mont St. Michel, to a putrid dungeon in Brittany, to a murderous encounter in a Paris cemetery; and to the unraveling of a conspiracy that could have changed the course of English history'... The series began with The Queen's Man, continued with Cruel as the Grave and Prince of Darkness is third in the series.
Sequel to Here Be Dragons and Falls the Shadow, this concludes the epic saga on the death throes of independent Wales in the 13th century. Historical fiction.
Richard III was eight when his father, the Duke of York was ambushed and slain during the Wars of the Roses, war fought between Lancastrians and Yorkists for the crown of England during the fourteen hundreds. Richard remained loyal to those he loved during these treacherous times. It was his strength. It was his undoing. Richard was raised in the shadow of his brother Edward who became king at nineteen. Charming, headstrong and brilliant militarily, Edward struggled for his crown. Richard served him loyally while Edward was on the throne and during exile. These are the final days of the Plantagenets, the line which began with Henry II and Eleanor and was to give way to the Tudors and Henry VII.
