great fun read!

Another Elizabeth I mystery from Harper, full of intrigue and murder at court. This time, while at Nonesuch Palace, one of Elizabeth's artists is murdered. With the help of her privy plot council, Elizabeth sets out to catch the murderer and finds her life as well as that of her devoted caregiver, Kat Ashley, in danger.

A little history + a bit of a mystery = a lot of fun. I enjoy these fictionalised stories where real historical figures are involved.

An interesting murder mystery set in Elizabethan England with Elizabeth I herself in a starring role. A serial killer uses fire as a weapon, or more accurately a mirror as a fire-starting weapon.
The young queen plans to pose for a portrait in the countryside of Surrey, but one of her artists is burned to death -- which really ticks her off big time.
Is there any truth to the "running boy" legend, or is it just a fairy tale that the locals like to amuse the visitors with?
Lizzie cannot solve this without the help of the canny Dr Dee and her Plot Council. But you can help!
