Recommended for older teen readers. William of Baskerville, the narrator of the story, arrives at a monastery in which a mysterious death occured. He begins to investigate the death of Adelma Otranto. The story takes place in the year 1327. I'd read Umberto Eco's book Plague Cemetary and decided to read another novel by him.
