After an absence of a year, Catherine LeVendeur and her husband Edgar are glad to return to Paris. When they enter the house, however, they are shocked by the discovery of the dead body of a Knight Templar. Although innocent, Catherine fears that she or her family will be incriminated. Her father Hubert has recently announced his Jewish roots, and twelfth-century Europe is not a safe place for Jews. She particularly fears the powerful knight, Jehan of Blois. Catherine must penetrate the secrets of the Knights Templar in order to vindicate her family.
Catherine and Edgar's loving relationship is warmly described against the mesmerizing sights and sounds of medieval Paris in this engrossing tale of mystery.
