"The Parisian Prodigal"

New from Minotaur Books: The Parisian Prodigal by Alan Gordon.

About the book, from the publisher:

“Only a fool would pass this one up.” —Laurie R. King

In 1205, Theophilos—a fool by trade, a family man by choice, and a spy by design—belongs, along with his family, to the Fools’ Guild, a group that secretly maintains the fragile order of society. In Toulouse, that order is threatened when, unexpectedly, a man claiming to be a full brother of the ruling count is found one morning in a local bordello next to a dead whore, killed with his own sword. Now, Theophilos and his family must uncover the truth.
The Parisian Prodigal is volume 8 of the Fools' Guild Mysteries.
