Have you been missing your Game of Thrones fix? This true detective story from medieval France provides a much-needed dose of political intrigue, family rivalries and backstabbing. It tells the story of Guillaume de Tignonville, a law enforcement officer in 15th century Paris, who is given the urgent task of tracking down the killers responsible for the shocking public assassination of the king's powerful brother, Louis of Orleans. In a world before scientific crime detection methods such as fingerprinting or DNA, Tignonville must use logic, witness accounts and good old-fashioned detective work to figure out the perpetrators...although bringing the culprits to justice in a chaotic medieval world is harder than you'd think.
