This appears to be the last in the Ursula Blanchard series (excluding the character's brief and rather unsatisfactory appearance in the author's House of Allerbrook writen using her real name). I am sorry for that, as I have generally enjoyed the series and really like and care about the regular characters - I think regular characters are the great strength of series such as these. This one toddles along nicely and reveals some of the complexity of the real Ridolfi plot, though I don't think it's among the strongest in the series. As I have said before, the portrayal of Catholics is rather simplistic in showing evevry single one as being hell-bent on setting up the Inquisition and burning heretics, and this does grate a bit. But I am sorry there will, it seems, be no more of these books.
