After his hair-raising adventures in London, Sir Robert Carey has finally tracked down Queen Elizabeth, who orders him to investigate the most dangerous cold case of her reign - the mysterious 1560 death of Amy Dudley (nee Robsart), unloved wife of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester.
Some thirty years back, the late Dudley was Elizabeth's favorite suitor and potential husband. The Queen has since been one of the most obvious suspects in arranging Amy's murder. This makes Carey deeply uneasy with his sleuthing role. Then someone manages to poison Carey with belladonna, which temporarily blinds him. Worse still, the steadfast Sergeant Dodd has disappeared on the road from London.
As the Queen's scandalous past collides with her magnificent State entrance into Oxford, can Carey rally in time to find both Dodd and the true murderer of Amy Robsart?
P.F. Chisholm is a pseudonym of a well-known writer of historical thrillers, childrens' books, and non-fiction blogs and ebooks. Previous titles in the Sir Robert Carey and Sergeant Dodd series are A Famine of Horses, A Season of Knives, A Surfeit of Guns, A Plague of Angels, A Murder of Crows, and An Air of Treason. www.patricia-finne...

Editorial Reviews

"A fun read for fans of Elizabethan mysteries."—Library Journal review of Sir Robert Carey Series "From opening line to bottom line, the felicity of the language leads us through a neatly dove-tailed plot that ranges from high comedy to genuine pathos, but never loses its sense of engagement—because it's dealing with characters who are Real People." —Diana Gabaldon from the Introduction of A Plague of Angels   "A Chisholm mystery is the next best thing to time travel. For those who find the journey more compelling than the final destination, a Chisholm novel will offer an unforgettable Elizabethan pilgrimage." —Kirkus Reviews of A Plague of Angels   "It's a lively, lifelike adventure that just happens to feature some of the most famous people in the history of drama." —Booklist of Plague of Angels
