"The eccentric old lady contacted Wild Freeman Publisher's bestsellign author, might have been crazy, but she was beyond a doubt, dead. Her ramshackle house contained her corpse, her fey daughter, Marie, and a locked box purported to hold the famous "Casket Letters,", the damning evidence that condemned Mary Queen of Scots to death. Lost for four hundred years, they could make a blockbuster of a book and put WildFreeman in the black at last."
This was an exceptional read--very easy to read, put down, and pick back up without getting lost!
Ordinarily mysteries with a historical theme are just my cup of tea. This one, however, I found very difficult to believe there was any historical veracity at all except possibly for the "Casket Letters." I was especially annoyed because I didn't feel there was any "closure" to the characters, especially that of a young girl essentially involved in the story. One does get, perhaps, a peek into the publishing industry.
