Glamis Castle provides a marvelous setting for this victorian mystery. Lord Charles Sheridan and Kate have been summoned to solve the mystery of the disappearance of the allegedly deceased Prince Eddy. A wonderful story!

This is another in the Kate Ardleigh series by husband and wife writing team, Susan and Bill Albert - Susan Wittig Albert publishes many other mystery series, but this is a favorite of mine! Glamis Castle is a lovely setting for a mystery and I love the way they have woven truth and fiction together to make a great story. I especially appreciate the way they've included "conspiracy theory" type fictions handled by other writers. The mystery here is not too difficult to figure out (it never really is), but that's not the point of these, to me - it's the characters, all of whom I've come to love reading about!

A Kate Sheridan mystery that examines the Prince Eddy-Jack-the-Ripper link. Am American sleuth married to a British aristocrat in the early 20th century.

The intrepid Lord and Lady Sheridan are once again called into service by His Royal Majesty King Edward. This time it means traveling to Clamis Castle in Scotland and finding the king's son, Prince Eddy who has disappeared from his 'safe house' after the murder of his caretaker. What adds to the intrigue is that Eddy is deaf, sometimes delusional, and reported dead by the royal family many years prior.

Although Kate and Charles don't spend a great deal of time together to solve this mystery, it was a fine read. Kate is trying to find inspiration for another book and hopes this haunted castle will give her ideas; Princess Victoria arrives to be her father's eyes and ears in the search; and Charles is afraid that he is probably being used for a royal coverup.

I appreciated that the authors finally explained why Charles had refused the Victoria Cross and resigned his commission in the King's Army. They also stay true to telling what the monarchy would do to stay on their throne. The book does have an unresolved issue at the end, but it will more than likely be resolved in the next book or two.

Now to read book 10!

This was a great book, chalk full of British history just past the death of Queen Victoria. I thought it was well plotted out and ended up reading it in one sitting. I love the Robin Paige books.

Her books are very interesting and have historical people intertwined who were actually alive in the era she wrote about. I am reading the whole series and hope she continues to add to them.

good idea for a story, but SOOOOO predictable and very flat, one dimensional characters. Not worth anyone's time to read.
