From the Publisher

With the glamour and intrigue of the court of Queen Elizabeth I as its backdrop, and an entrancing new heroine -- widow Ursula Blanchard -- sniffing out clandestine conspiracies, this enthralling new historical mystery series will have a special appeal for fans of Ellis Peters's Brother Cadfael novels.

The year is 1560. The setting is the court of Queen Elizabeth. Ursula Blanchard, an impoverished young widow newly come to court, is sent to Cumnor Place to protect the queens reputation by looking after Amy Robsart, wife of Sir Robert Dudley, courtier to the queen and prime subject of scandalous rumors swirling about the palace.

When Amy is found lying with a broken neck at the bottom of the staircase in her home, many suspect foul play. The queen, in love with Dudley, had a motive. Dudley, ambitious to marry Elizabeth, certainly had reason to wish his wife dead. Indeed, in the months before her death, Amy herself believed she was being poisoned.

Amy's violent end, and Ursula's own failure to prevent it, along with the brutal murder of someone dear to her, propel Ursula on a perilous quest that will touch her in the most terrifyi

Seller Comments:

New York. 1997. Scribner. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 0684838419. 279 pages. November 1997. hardcover. Jacket illustration by Harry Bliss. keywords: Mystery England Women. inventory # 24593. FROM THE PUBLISHER-Ursula Blanchard's first days at court are exciting and troubling. The young widow misses her small daughter, sent to live with a nursemaid; she doesn't know the customs of court and she must be careful to hide her relative poverty from the other ladies who judge people by their worldly possessions. The Queen has more than charity in mind for Ursula. She also has a most delicate assignment. Rumors are swirling at the court linking Elizabeth to her Master of the Horse, Sir Robert Dudley. Unhappily for the Queen, however, Dudley is married. And it would be too convenient if Dudley's wife, Amy Robsart, were to die, leaving her husband free to wed the Queen. Her death would also cause a scandal that Elizabeth wishes fervently to prevent. Ursula can help the Queen by protecting Amy. She is sent to Amy's home, Cumnor Place, where she must taste all the food before Amy eats it and inspect anything that could be used to harm her. Ursula sees only fear in Amy's eyes when Amy learns that Ursula comes from Dudley and the Queen, a fear soon justified when she is found lying with a broken neck at the bottom of her staircase. Who killed Amy Robsart? Saddened by her failure to prevent Amy's death, puzzled by the intrigue she senses all around her, and propelled by the brutal murder of someone dear to her, Ursula sets out on her own perilous quest that will thrust not only her but her daughter into danger..
