From the Publisher

A riveting true story of murder and detection in 15th-century Paris, by one of the most brilliant medievalists of his generation.

On a chilly November night in 1407, Louis of Orleans was murdered by a band of masked men. The crime stunned and paralyzed France since Louis had often ruled in place of his brother King Charles, who had gone mad. As panic seized Paris, an investigation began. In charge was the Provost of Paris, Guillaume de Tignonville, the city's chief law enforcement officer--and one of history's first detectives. As de Tignonville began to investigate, he realized that his hunt for the truth was much more dangerous than he ever could have imagined.

A rich portrait of a distant world, BLOOD ROYAL is a gripping story of conspiracy, crime and an increasingly desperate hunt for the truth. And in Guillaume de Tignonville, we have an unforgettable detective for the ages, a classic gumshoe for a cobblestoned era.

    Until Death Do Us Part

    After dark on Oct. 28, 1962, new parents Mary and Felix Vail left their 3-month-old son with a sitter and headed out on a boat on the Calcasieu River near their home in Lake Charles, La. Vail would later say Mary spotted a stump in the water and fell overboard as he swerved to miss it—and that his desperate attempts to save her failed. When her body washed up two days later, her death was ruled an accidental drowning despite the bruises on her head and neck, the scarf in her mouth and the double-indemnity insurance policy her husband had taken out on the 22-year-old young mother and former hom
