About the Author

Priscilla Royal grew up in British Columbia, earned a degree in world literature from San Francisco State University, and worked for the federal government in various positions. She is the author of the Medieval Mystery series featuring Eleanor, prioress of Tyndal, and she is a member of the Mystery Writers of America, California Writers Club, and Sisters in Crime.


At the start of Royal's outstanding 11th medieval whodunit featuring Prioress Eleanor and Brother Thomas (after 2013's Covenant with Hell), the imperious Fr. Etienne Davoir arrives from France to inspect the operations of Eleanor's Tyndal Priory, of the Order of Fontevraud, in East Anglia. While such inspections are routine for other orders, this will be Tyndal's first in Eleanor's eight years as prioress. Abbess Isabeau, Davoir's sister, has sent a message from France saying her brother "would look into whether any impropriety had occurred amongst the religious." The night before the priest's arrival, a soldier escorting his party has his throat slit while sleeping in an inn. Another murder follows, and suspicions center on a member of Tyndal Priory, even as Eleanor must fend off an accusation of a carnal affair. Royal amplifies and deepens her series characters in the service of a clever plot that elevates her work to the top rank of historical mystery writers.--Publishers Weekly, starred review
