from the back cover:

With his shaven head and black cloak, the sleuth Sigismondo cuts an imposing figure as he courts death and danger in Renaissance Italy. At home among both royals and rogues, he is a master of the noble art of detection--and with his companion, the peasant Benno, he sheds light on the darkest of deeds...

In a fit of rage, Prince Livio has killed his own son--and if it weren't for Sigismondo, his daughter would have met the same fate. But while Sigismondo spirits the beautiful Minerva away, the cardinal who was to serve at her upcoming wedding is killed. Now Sigismondo must play a game of hide and seek: hide the princess from danger, and seek out a heartless killer.

A very witty, humorous book with a convoluted plot twist that all works out in the end!
Reminds me a bit of The Count of Monty Christo...
Worth a look!
