The Season of the Beast The First Agnes De Souarcy Mystery


The Season of the Beast The First Agnes De Souarcy Mystery by Andrea H. Japp

'The season of the beast was near - ' 1304. The King of France and the Church are locked in a battle for power that will also decide the fate of the Knights Templar and Hospitaller. Meanwhile in the Normandy countryside, young widow Agnes de Souarcy, the beautiful lady of the manor, is fighting to retain her independent way of life, aware that her spiteful half-brother will do anything to destroy her. These two different worlds collide in the forest near Souarcy, where a terrifying creature begins to kill and mutilate a succession of monks on their way to deliver a secret message of momentous importance. In the first Agnes de Souarcy Chronicle, Andrea Japp offers the reader a fast-paced, multi-layered mystery within a richly imagined portrait of medieval France.
