Royals thoughtful 12th medieval mystery (after 2015s Satans Lullaby) takes Prioress Eleanor and Sister Anne, a skilled sub-infirmarian who nurses the sick, from Tyndal Priory to Woodstock Manor, where the prioresss father, Baron Adam of Wynethorpe, has been struck by apoplexy during a royal visit. Another visitor to the dying baron is his son and heir, Sir Hugh. Accompanying Hugh is his bastard son, Richard. Meanwhile, Hawis, an attendant to the queen, is found hanged in her chambers at the manor. Since the queen is recovering from childbirth, Alan FitzRoald, the high sheriff of Berkshire, is keen to keep the news of Hawiss death from the monarch until shes stronger, and he asks Eleanors help in ascertaining how the woman died. Annes conclusion that Hawis wasnt a suicide leads to Richards surprise confession to murder. Royal matches a clever story line with intelligent characterizations, while providing a disturbing look at anti-Semitism in 13th-century England. (Feb.)
