review 1: Another compelling read that brings to life the shadowy world of plots and conspiracies in the closing years of the Glorious Queen of England's reign.

An interesting insight into the final years of Queen Elizabeth's reign. Well written and engaging.
An excellent book, kept my intrigued to the end, looking forward to more from this author.

Quite interesting. Bit ponderous at times.
