A cover-up to hide the true reason a Prince was murdered. This book had me questioning could this really have happened? Could history have been re-written? Why would the Royals wish to tell the world a death was not really what it seemed? The attention to historical accuracy and detail was excellent, even though the plot moved rather slowly at times but then that fitted in well with the era. I enjoyed this more than Death and the Jubilee, its characters were more believable and though Lord Powerscourt and his enigmatic side kick Lord Johnny Fitzgerald remain as good as ever. Powerscourt's sweetheart plays and important part in the solving of this fascinating mystery. Will they move into the Edwardian era and further serve King and Country? I hope so.
