John Ford uses this idea and weaves a complex tale around the secret baby. Taking 13 years to complete, this book is full of very detailed research. The chapters go back and forth between different time settings capturing the lives of the many characters.
I liked the opening scene, the shocking murder of an innocent vicar and the leaving of a mysterious calling card. I also liked the jump to 1575 and Kenilworth Castle where we have several close scenes between Elizabeth and Robert Dudley.
There then follows a plot which entwines the search for descendants from the secret child and a growing list of murdered people which threatens to reach its final victim. The National Criminal Intelligence Service, Mi5, the police and several other security services are involved in the search for the person ultimately behind the plot to replace the Queen with the true heir to the English throne.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
It's an intriguing tale that does make you wonder about the " what ifs " of the world and how things could have turned out very differently to how we know them now.
One minor point though that irritated the life out of me when reading it is that nowhere in Scotland is there a place called Govern, the area is in fact called Govan.
Overall , it's a rip roaring yarn!
I hate giving up on a book but I've read so many well written books that it seems I don't have the patience, time or energy to wade through one which isn't well written. Paragraphs which are broken in the wrong places, sentences which are broken up leaving the second part not a proper sentence. Dialogue attached to the wrong paragraph. It all became very disjointed.
I'd been looking forward to reading this so I am quite disappointed. I've read other authors whose first book was good in concept but needed brushing up in writing style and who went on to write good books, so I hope John P Ford does the same.
