Arianna Franklin has created a great historical mystery series with The Serpent's Tale and The Mistress of the Art of Death. In this book, Henry II's favorite mistress has been murdered and the queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, is the prime suspect. Unless Adelia can solve the mystery, England will be thrown into a civil war. The combination of strong plot, great narration, and historical setting made this book a pleasure to listen to. There was enough historical basis in the book to make me check out facts on wikipedia. One thing is for sure - women's rights have come a long way since the 12th century!
