A Mortal Bane

The Magdalene la Bâtarde Mysteries: Book #1
By Roberta Gellis
Narrated by Wanda McCaddon / 10 hours 36 minutes

Roberta Gellis, acclaimed author of The Roselynde Chronicles, brings medieval London to life—and death—with this tale of splendor and squalor.

Magdalene la Batarde is the madam of the Old Priory Guesthouse in Southwark. She and her women are expected to engage in a number of sinful activities, but bloody murder isn’t one of them—until Baldassare, the messenger, dies. Magdalene and her women refuse to allow his death to go unavenged, aware that if they don't find the killer, they will be assumed guilty, because they are whores.

Into this sea of intrigue steps the handsome Sir Bellamy of Itchen. The bishop of Winchester, who was served for many years by Baldassare, has put Bellamy, his most trusted knight, in charge of the murder investigation. Bellamy is convinced that Magdalene is involved right up to her beautiful eyebrows, but he is unable to believe that his captivating chief suspect is a killer. Now, he must find out how and why Baldassare died—or watch the mysterious Magdalene meet her fate on the gallows.
