Murder and mayhem in Queen Elizabeth I’s court
The court of Elizabeth I is thrown into chaos when the queen’s youngest and sweetest lady-in-waiting is murdered, her body left on the high altar of the Chapel Royal in Whitehall Palace. Solving the murder will require the cunning of Nicholas Holt, younger brother of the Earl of Blackwell―spy, rake, and owner of the infamous Black Sheep tavern. Elizabeth―salty-tongued, vain, and fiercely intelligent―can, with a glance, reward Nick with a purse of gold or have his head removed.
When a second lady-in-waiting is slain at Whitehall, Nick and his faithful sidekick―an enormous Irish Wolfhound named Hector―know they are treading on treacherous ground, and only the killer’s head on a platter will keep them in the queen’s good graces.
“A classically plotted whodunit set against the background of Elizabethan London…well researched and vividly realized.”—Fiona Buckley
