In the late summer of 1274, King Edward has finally been anointed England's ruler, and his queen contemplates a pilgrimage in gratitude for their safe return from Outremer, a journey that will include a stay at Tyndal Priory. Envoys are sent to confirm that everything will be suitable for the king's wife, and Prioress Eleanor nervously awaits them, knowing that regal visits bring along expense and honor. The cost is higher than expected, however, when Death arrives as the unexpected emissary. One of the courtiers is murdered near the hut where Brother Thomas now lives as a hermit. Each member of the party has reason to hate the dead man, including Crowner Ralf's eldest brother, Sir Fulke, and the prioress's nemesis, the man in black. Soon Eleanor is embroiled in the dangerous world of power games, both secular and religious. Indeed, England's future under a new king may offer hope and relief, but skeletons from the past can come back to life like those in the biblical valley of dry bones. Which had cause enough to kill?

"Royal gets better with each book. Her seventh series title has Prioress Eleanor honing her skills and her knowledge of political maneuvering. This is a series not to be missed by readers who yearn for more medieval mysteries from Ellis Peters." — Library Journal
"What makes this series tick are the recurring subplots involving Eleanor, Thomas, and Ralf that run through all the narratives, binding the characters and their intimate stories together into an intriguing subtext." — Margaret Flanagan, Booklist
