Rate this:

A totally absorbing, tense and dark 12th-century medieval crime story with a charming and engaging hero, the Chevalier Galeran.
Blue Blood is set in Chartres. In 1134, a fire destroyed the town, and ten years later the culprit has still never been found. While passing through Chartres, Galeran is drawn into the mystery surrounding the drowning of a man, which curiously harks back to the fire ten years earlier. He lives among the master craftsmen and artisans who are painstakingly rebuilding the cathedral in an effort to discover the truth. He also falls in love with a beautiful redhead, Dame Ausanne, the local female physician.
The book is filled with the most exquisite and meticulous detail, including maps and recipes, with not a hint or sound of the modern world. A seamless and faithful translation unfolds a compelling and engrossing story of murder, betrayal and revenge, with a goriness and cruelty peculiar to the Middle Ages.
