Praise for Philppa Gregory:'Written from instinct, not out of calculation, and it shows.'Peter Ackroyd, The Times'For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating.' Sunday Times'Gregory is great at conjuring a Tudor film-set of gorgeous gowns and golden-lattered dining. She invokes some swoonsome images.while the politics are personal enough to remain pertinent.' DailyTelegraph'The contemporary mistress of historical crime fiction is Philippa Gregory. Her novels are filled with strong, determined women who take their fate into their own hands.Gregory brings to life the sights, smells and textures of 16th-century England.' Kate Mosse, Financial Times
