Another great romp through ELizabethan England and in interesting mystery as well. More character advancement and setting up for future stories than straight out mystery. Definitely worth the time and an excellent world to disappear into during lunch hours at work. I read several series of mysteries set in Elizabethan England and each one treats the Queen differently, this one holds the Queen suspect, neither in favor nor against her, but wary of interaction with her. On the whole an interesting position for the characters to be in.
