This story of intrigue in 14th century England, narrated by a medieval scholar and written by Bruce Holsinger, will peak the interest of readers who enjoyed books like “The DaVinci Code,” by Dan Brown, and “The Name of the Rose,” by Umberto Ecco.

The eponymous “burnable book” contains prophecies detailing the deaths of English kings beginning with William the Conqueror. All of the deaths happened exactly as prophesied. Only one death has yet to occur: the death of the current king, Richard II.
