Kate Mosse

Man­tle, $38

Con­sum­mate sto­ry­teller Kate Mosse re­turns to Car­cas­sonne, France, for her lat­est his­toric mas­ter­piece, set in 1562. A bru­tal re­li­gious war is rag­ing be­tween the Ro­man Catholics and the Huguenots. Mi­nou Jou­bert re­ceives a cryp­tic let­ter that reads, “She knows that you live”, but be­fore she has time to work out what it means, she meets a young Huguenot con­vert who des­per­ately needs her help. A well­re­searched and rip­pingly plot­ted mys­tery/ro­mance.
