Publisher Description

The third novel in Sharon Kay Penman's much-loved medieval mystery series featuring Justin de Quincy. 

July 1193: Richard Lionheart, eldest and most favored son of Dowager Queen Eleanor of Aquitane, languishes in an Austrian dungeon, held for ransom by the Holy Roman Emperor. Lusting after the crown in England, his brother John plots with his country's bitterest foe, King Philippe of France, to see to it Richard never leaves Austria alive. But the Queen has already begun to meet the ransom demands, and it is only a matter of time before the Austrians turn over their royal prisoner. And then one of the ransom payments vanishes in the fastnesses of Wales, itself wracked by rebellion and intrigue. Into this maelstrom, Eleanor sends her trusted man, Justin de Quincy—and murder soon follows...

Dragon's Lair

While this book is entertaining, the misspellings, the horrid type setting, etc., etc. truly ruined the story. It was distracting. If this had been the first book by the author that I had read I promise you I would have never purchased another.

I would like to be reimbursed!

Sincerely,
Leslie Ward
