The Jester
by James Patterson

A libertarian novel set in medieval France. A big departure from Patterson’s other novels. The hero is a red haired innkeeper who goes on a crusade to Antioch, deserts, returns with relics to discover his wife is missing, their infant son murdered, and his inn destroyed. He sets out to rescue his wife and ends up becoming a court jester and the leader of a revolt against his evil noble lord.
