The book asks and answers ten questions about the most intriguing aspects of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots: her religion, her patriotism, her love affairs, her supposed adultery with her secretary Rizzio and her alleged murder of her husband Lord Darnley. It delves into the question of whether her third husband Bothwell was an early lover; whether she actually met Elizabeth I of England, and ends with a consideration of just how foolish or how clever she was.

Running at just over 120 pages and reasonably priced this is a concise, easy to follow read that I can recommend to both those already familar with the subject and those interested in history generally.
