Summary
In 1205, Theophilos--fool by trade, family man, and spy--is ensconced as the Chief Fool in Toulouse. He, wife Claudia, 15-month-old daughter Portia, and apprentice Helga, seem to be the entertainers they claim to be. But they're also members of the Fools' Guild, working behind the scenes to stabilize a turbulent Europe. Toulouse ruler, Count Raimon VI, is favored by the guild. Then a man arrives claiming to be Baudoin, Raimon's previously unknown full brother. One morning Baudoin awakens in a local bordello, next to a dead whore, killed with his dagger. He asks for Theophilos' help in solving the murder
