Customer Review

on 20 August 2010
I was hooked from the first page - James Forrester (Ian Mortimer) has written a first-class novel. It is set in the early reign of Queen Elizabeth and centres around a chronicle which contains a document which if becomes known would bring about the downfall of 'two queens'. Initially you could be forgiven for thinking it is a not unusual plot but as the book progresses this is not the case. Ian Mortimer, being a Historian by profession has interlaced fact with fiction extremely well and the book is littered with facts that we know to be documented and there are a few surprises too. It is a book that contains all good elements for a terrific read, mysterious documents, secret societies, hidden passages, Royal intrigue, - the good 'Knight' Clarenceux and the 'bad' courtier - Walsingham and the 'Country's Saviour - Cecil.

All in all an excellent Elizabethan mystery that leaves you wondering - could this be true? I was hooked after the first page and enjoyed all 400+ pages - be prepared to take an unforgettable roller coaster of a read and enjoy!!!!
