This review is from: After Elizabeth: The Death of Elizabeth and the Coming of King James (Paperback)
I find this book's Robert Cecil quite contrary to the other book. He is very loyal to Elizabeth, he thinks he should be so and his father said in his will so. But this book's Robert Cecil wants James on the throne instead of Elizabeth, because it's better to his own good. Everybody in this book is different from the other book.
There is no Starky referring or Weir, Anne Somerset, Christopher Hibbert, Jane Dunn. Nor Dr. David Loades or Dr. Susan Dran. I presumed to found lot of these Elizabethan historian's work written as the sauce. As author write about Buchanan she must be read about his work, yet there are no reference to his book (it's available even now). There should be lot of "see this book" or "according to that record" mark. But there are not.
As it was, I think this book's view is not new, but misunderstanding.
