Epiphany, 1193: The road out of Winchester was hidden by snow, and Justin de Quincy was making slow progress when he heard the first faint shout. It came again, louder and clearer, a cry for help. Spurring his stallion, de Quincy raced toward the source. But he was already too late. As the two assailants fled, de Quincy cradled the dying man, trying to make out his whispered words, "They did not get it," he rasped. "Promise me. You must deliver this letter to her. To the queen."

Eleanor of Aquitaine sits upon England's throne. At seventy, she has outlived the husband who once imprisoned her. But has she also outlived her much-loved eldest son, Richard Lionheart, England's king--missing these past two months? Only Eleanor's fierce will can keep her youngest son, John, from seizing the crown. Only a letter, spattered with the blood of a dying man murdered on the Winchester road, can tell her if Richard still lives.

I understand that the book was showing just how random an investigation can be, with many loose ends and unanswered questions. But...

4.0 The Queen’s Man by Sharon Kay Penman
Series: Justin de Quincy #1 This mediaeval mystery got off to a slow start for me. Justin de Quincy is tasked by the Queen to find the murderer of a goldsmith who had been carrying a letter for her. I spent most of the book thinking it was entertaining but not great, so when some of the character...

4.0 The Queen's Man
I didn't think the mystery in this book was anything overly impressive. The characters, both the protagonist and secondary, were wonderful.
