What happens when a knight can't take a joke? When it's Florence in the 13th century and you're the joker, the answer can be a matter of life and death.
When Corrado the Jester's prank-for-hire goes wrong, a brawl erupts between two rival factions. Ever turbulent, Florence reels on the brink of civil war. One side makes the traditional offer of a marriage to restore peace, but that fragile peace crumbles under the pressure of a woman's interference, an unforgivable insult, and an outraged cry for revenge.
Corrado is pressed into unwilling service as messenger by both sides. Sworn to secrecy, he watches in horror as the headstrong knight Buondelmonte violates every code of honor to possess the woman he wants, while another woman, rejected and enraged, schemes to destroy him.
Corrado already knows too much for his own safety. Will Buondelmonte's reckless act set off a full-scale vendetta? And if it does, will even Corrado's famous wit and ingenuity be enough to keep himself alive and protect those dear to him?
"A Thing Done is a novel rich in historical detail ... a novel of love, friendship, and loyalty."
