A Murderous Procession – Ariana Franklin (A Mistress of the Art of Death Novel)

In 1178, King Henry II sends his daughter Joanna to Palermo to marry his cousin, the King of Sicily. War on the continent and outbreaks of plague make it especially dangerous, so the king chooses Adelia Aguilar to travel with her. As a medical doctor, and the king’s personal mistress of the art of death, it is Adelia’s duty to leave behind her own cherished daughter in order to safeguard the princess on the arduous year-long journey.

Someone else has also joined the royal procession – a murderer bent on the worst kind of revenge. When people in the princess’s intimate circle begin to die, Adelia suspects that the killer could be a trusted companion hiding in plain sight. But is his ultimate, intended victim the princess, or Adelia herself?
