Fortune Like The Moon.

by Alys. Clare

First edition. Author's first book. Fine in dust jacket. Introduces Josse D'Aquin and Abbess Helewise. King Henry I is dead, and his wife is freed from jail. Everyone in England awaits the arrival of the new King Richard. As a gesture of good will and to demonstrate to the commoners that he is the ruler of all Englishmen, Richard grants clemency to the prisoners in the country's jails. When a nun is found murdered with her throat slit, the people believe that one of the newly freed prisoners is responsible. Josse D'Aquin, a brave and loyal ex-soldier, joins forces with level-headed Abbess Helewise to solve the gruesome crime.
